Railway exhibits await your 1%

12018

The end of the January is the time for the flat-tax payers to report to the tax office and soon the other tax payers will do the same after receiving their PIT-11 forms. This is also the time when we would like to ask you to support us with your 1% of income tasks.

Why is it worth to support us? We use the money received from the 1% as the own capital required to receive other funding actually multiplying its worth. Thanks to that we managed to accomplish the following in 2017:

  • 26 194,90 PLN received from 1%,
  • 22 000 PLN received from the Łódź Voivodeship’s Conservationist Office for the roundhouse roof repairs above stands 12 and 13,
  • 26 250 PLN received from the Council of Łódź Voivodeship for the renovation of the pump house.
  • 14 500 PLN received from the City Council of Skierniewice for track repairs.

Additionally, thanks to the support of the National Board of Heritage we organized a series of Volunteers Camps during which:

  • we continued the renovation of the steam engine class Ol49-4,
  • started rust-proofing of the engine class Ty51-1,
  • continued upkeep of the Shed’s surroundings,
  • repainted the turntable and the fence surrounding the Shed,
  • prepare new exhibits for the exhibition of railway signalling.

How we will spend the 1% in 2018? Similarly to previous years, it will become the basis of the own capital required to receive further subsidies – mostly devoted for repairs of buildings. We would like to remind, that renovation of buildings is the first stage to our target which is the complete historical train in a working order. We will also continue the work by the rolling stock (class Ol49-4, TKp 6042) and the signal box equipment on the signalling exhibition.

To support us, remember to provide our KRS number 0000216091 on your PIT tax form and the pledged amount. Thank you!


First donation in 2018

skierniewice-9

On 18th January results of the financing competition for non-profit organizations were revealed. We are happy to report that we were granted 20 000 PLN for the most urgent tasks regarding the maintenance of the tracks in the Shed. This amount will be increased by at least 5 000 PLN of own capital. We will start the works with the beginning of March and target the tracks leading to the turntable and the main track out of the shed.

We would like to express our gratitude to the city council. Soon we will provide more details to all those willing to help us in track repairs.
