Children’s Day 2016 in the Engine Shed


On 4th June took place one of the oldest annual events in Skierniewice Shed – Special Open Day for Children which take place on the first Saturday after International Children’s Day. This form of visiting the Shed was available long before regular open days. The perfect weather also attracted many visitors – over 500. The Special Open Day is fitted for the needs of the youngest visitors.


As each year, an exhibition of rolling stock was available to the tourists. Due to the ongoing roof repairs it was a bit more modest than in the previous year. Except the usual rolling stock outdoor exhibits, we presented the battery shunter AEG and 4th class carriage “Steinfurt”. We were also visited by the youngtimers from the Skierniewice’s Classics group who joined the exhibition. It was also possible to have a tour inside the roundhouse with the guide (an abbridged version of the usual sightseeing route to no to exhaust the youngest visitors).


A very popular place was the exhibition of railway signaling and traffic safety devices where one could try himself in a role of station dispatcher. Another interactive attraction was the digital railway layout prepared and showcased by the models shop LOKO-Model from Warsaw. One could also visits the stands of Bolimów Landscape Park and Łódź Agglomeration Railway. We would like to express our big gratitude to all the partners of the event.

We would like to invite you to another Open Day organized in cooperation with Bank Spółdzielczy, which will take place on Saturday, 25th July from 11AM to 3 PM.
