A few kilometers to the north of Pleszew this cramics factory has a clay pit next to the factory, and in October 2000, a continuous rope worked incline worked down to the pit. At the bottom of the pit a Wls40 loco hauled the skips to a bucket and chain excavator.
There is only one loco in working order Wls40(ZNTK No.1408 built in 1963).  
A small brickbuilt loco shed is to the right of the incline, and a derelict loco is dumped in the bushed nearby.  
At the foot of the incline the loco runs round the skips and backs them up to the winding shed.  
The loco waits for the next set of skips to be lowered down  
As the loaded skips are taken up the incline, the empties are lowered down for the next journey.
