The exhibits

The exhibits at the museum mainly focus on the Tanvald – Kořenov rack and pinion railway, its rich and often troubled history and the rolling stock operated there. To a lesser extent, it also covers the surrounding railway lines, including the Kořenov - Szklarska Poręba line. The museum not only houses a number of texts and photographs concerned with the history, present and future of the Tanvald - Kořenov rack and pinion line and the connecting line from Kořenov to Szklarska Poręba, but also exhibits which are linked to this unique line. The exhibits include models of various types of rack and pinion railways, rack and pinion wheel sets and their layout and other points of technical interest.

The museum has been established with contributions from many people who have lent or donated photographs or exhibits. We intend to gradually modify the museum and please feel free to contact us, if you would like to help with the museum.
