Railway Children’s Day


Traditionally, the first Saturday of June (3rd June) was dedicated to the youngest fans of the railway. Aware of the needs of the young visitors, there were no guided tours, instead major part of the Shed was open for independent sightseeing. Our guests could visit the interior of the roundhouse housing our most valuable rolling stock exhibits and the youngest enjoyed their time at the interactive exhibition of railway signalling. For those interested in conventional sightseeing, we organized ad-hoc one group, which had the opportunity to see the whole interior of the roundhouse. To sum up, the Shed was visited on this day by 352 tourists.


This year we were joined in the organization of the Children’s Day by the biggest Polish freight railway company – PKP Cargo S.A. As a part of the action “Summer with steam engines” a special stand was placed offering many attractions to the youngest audience ranging from quizzes to railway-related souvenirs. The organization of the Railway Children’s Day was also supported by Łódź Commuters Railway (ŁKA), which prepared a special offer for the guests of the Engine Shed. Passengers arriving in Skierniewice in ŁKA trains could travel back for free using their one-way ticket with a special stamp obtained in the Shed. The catering was provided by Atmosfera pizza house.
