Kulice Tczewskie, Majewo, Morzeszczyn

In this post I'm visiting some stops along the Bydgoszcz - Tczew line

Nearby is the town - Kulice

Kulice Tczewskie is a small station with only two platforms
EU07-187, Dolnośląskie Linie Autobusowe sp.zoo Wrocław (Leased to Captrain)

From Wikipedia (using Google translate from Polish): The basic task of line 131 is to transport heavy freight trains from Silesia to the Tri-City ports. This line, due to bypassing large agglomerations (freight trains bypassed the Bydgoszcz Główna and Inowrocław stations using slipways or other lines) and the relatively low density of buildings, was devoid of passenger traffic that could interfere with the operation of freight trains. The strongest electric locomotives operated in Poland and the most capacious six-axle coal wagons were intended to serve this line. The peaks in transport (passenger and freight) occurred in the 1930s and 1970s when due to the large production and export of coal, there was congestion of freight trains on the line. Freight trains serving the local (local) industry had a very negligible share in transport work.
From Forum Kolejowe: The locomotive went for tests after revision repair [R7], repainted (thanks to the efforts of the Association of Railway Enthusiasts from Krakow) in its original colors - yellow and brown with the restoration of metal markings in the original type and with non-original "scissor" pantographs.
