The Mława to Maków Maz narrow gauge railway ran regular freight and occasional tourist passenger trains until the end of PKP narrow gauge in 2001 when it closed. Several attempts have been made to reopen the line. SKPL was the operator for a few years but freight traffic did not materialise. Occasional tourist trains have run, most recently in 2008-09, but no regular tourist trains have run since 2009.
A small group of volunteers looks after the depot area at Mława. The section of line from Grudusk to Leszno is said to be passable but unfortunately this is now believed to be cut off from the depot at Mława as some 200 metres of track have been stolen.
