Polish Narrow Gauge

Okay, so this site isn't exactly a new find:

Galeria Kolei W±skotorowych



However, I have been doing a lot of research, so I thought I'd share where I'm at currently.
First of all, this site contains HO-scale (1/87th) models of various Polish narrow-gauge diesel locos, railcars, mine locos (O/H electric, battery electric (I think) and diesel) and the associated rolling stock. The trick here is to sort out just what goes with what - and since the whole site is in Polish, that's proved difficult.
What I have found is that the prototype gauges of these vehicles range from a tiny 450mm to 1050mm, and in HO scale that means that in there are models that can be put onto Z (6.5mm) and N-gauge (9mm) and even TT (12mm) track. They also belong to different Polish narrow-gauge railways, either industrial or preserved lines. These include peat and coal mining industry, museum lines and so on.

So far, what I have done is sort them into groups and made each file into a 300dpi A4 sheet. Here are the resultant folders:

Polish NG-trains.jpg

I have recoloured a few of the locos to represent specific prototypes whose photos I have found during research, like this one:

Polish NG-10324876_v10c-wigierska-kolej-waskotorowa.jpg Polish NG-v10c-blue-yellow-stripes.jpg

What I want is this - if anyone can help me contact the author(s) of these files, I'd like to make them available in the downloads section here. Also if anyone can help me make any more sense of the details of these prototypes, I'd welcome any input. I'm making this a major project, so as to do a number of interesting dioramas.

Some interesting narrow gauge locomotives! I look forward to seeing your dioramas and hope that you will get some good input.

I do powered paper train models in 1/2 inch scale and would be very interested in some of these locomotives.

Great news - I managed to contact the site owner, and got this email reply:
"Hello,

I don't see any problems with sharing my models on that forum. Also please send me your recoloured locomotives and I will upload them on my website on the next update. But please describe from what railroads are those colors or is it fictitious.
I'm working on few new models of freight cars and diesel railcars and I want to upload them before the end of the year.

Regards
Sebastian Kiszka"

So - I'll get cracking!

Well. NG is out of my interest, but I'm glad that somebody design some models of it. We (in Poland) had lot of NG railways in 19 th and 20th century. Unfortunately lot of local NG lines has been canceled :(

Nice thing about things like these is that as well as being themselves they can serve as patterns for building in other materials in larger scales, such as with styrene in On30 or in G.
