Rebuild of class Ls60-143 electric installation


Despite the fact that diesel shunting engine class Ls60-143 came to the Shed several years ago, for a long time it was exploited in a state of slight disrepair. Our biggest concern was the faulty electric installation, limited to a starter circuit. Defunct alternator meant that each run had to be followed by a lengthy battery recharging.

During the autumn 2014 our youngest volunteers began refitting the missing parts of the Ls60’s installation. The engine received back the head- and backlights and, the most important, battery recharging circuit. The repairs were finished on time, before the shots to the movie “Wołyń” where little Ls60 had plenty of work to do. As the engine is now in full working order, there is still something to be done with its external aesthetics. Yet, class Ls60 has to wait for its turn in the renovation schedule.
