Due to economical changes in 1990s, many of the lines have been closed or even dismantled, however some of then are still operating. As - generally speaking - Germans used to be more fond of railways (while Russians and Austrians less) most of the narrow gaude lines had been built in nowadays western part of Poland. The region, that owns most of these still working is Wielkopolska region.
