Can someone suggest a source of information about train travel between Lodz and
Vilna around 1920? I'd like to get a sense of how long the trip took (I'm
assuming it was an all-day affair) and whether that was a direct route or
involved a change of train.
Hi,

During the interwar period, distance >from Warsaw to Wilno 423 km (263
miles ) was covered in 5 1/2 hours, which translates to train speed of 76.5 km/h.

In addition, railway trip >from Lodz to Warszawa lasted 1 hr and 28 min.

Refer to history of Polish Railways during WWI and interwar period.
