Abstract: The train building development coming into existence in Poland since 1842 was ruled by its own laws. Owing to its ennobling character, it was modelled on majestic patterns of recognised architecture. Th e expression of its form was emphasised with numerous details which with time underwent a specifi c transformation. After the Second World War this process was stopped. Attempts of the reconstruction of old objects and erecting new ones demonstrate signifi cant ignorance in view of the historical and aesthetic values of train buildings. Th is translates directly into the actual impoverishment of the architectural detail on railways and breaking the natural cycle of the development of construction.
