The issue of adapting the lines excluded for economic reasons from exploitation for a longer period of time by railway administration boards becomes in many countries, including Poland, a question of importance. Local governments, which own the areas where such railroads are located, are facing the problem of opening these lines but having in mind the improvement of life conditions of local communities. The actual task is grounded, however, in assessing the costs of openingrevitalizing of such
