As part of a personal project looking at the Tram Depots of Europe, I'm now looking at the Katowice system, which must be one of the biggest systems in Europe. I've found the following depots, with their approximate location, but I don't know if they are closed. Also, I may be missing some. The depots I've found are...
BEDZIN - at the western edge of Bedzin, beyond the OSIEDLE ZAMKOWE PETLA terminus of lines 24 & 28,
CHORZOW-BATORY - the works, on the east side of Inwalidzka,
BYTOM - on the west side of Drzewna, in Stroszek,
GLIWICE - at the western edge of Maciejow, and...
ZAWODZIE - in the east of Katowice, on the north side of "1 Maja".
Is this list accurate?

I need to add that in Chorzów Batory nowadays serves as a place where are made tramways repairs and modernisations, so it is still used by Tramwaje Śląskie (Silesian Tramways), but just not as a depot.

Pewienslazak, Potim - thanks. I knew that the main Tram Works were at Chorzow-Batory, but from the images on Google Earth, it looked desolate, so I thought it was closed down.
