Children’s Day in the Engine Shed


The Saturday on 1st June was fully devoted to the youngest railway fans on the occasion of the Children’s Day. During that day 693 guests visited our shed.

Visitors could see our collection of the historic railway stock displayed along the sightseeing route inside and outside the roundhouse. The exhibition of railway signalling and traffic control was also open to the public.

Our new attractions also found some interest among the visitors: the exhibition of photographs by Zbyszek Gradowski Railways in Skierniewice and, especially popular among the young guests, garden railway. At the stand of the biggest Polish goods transportation company, PKP Cargo S.A. kids could participate in various competitions with prizes and have their face painted. The PKP Group’s Foundation promoted the safety crossing action and at its own stand the Bolimów Landscape Park invited the potential visitors.

For years now PKP PLK S.A. is joining us during the Children’s Day. This time the company arrived with the road-rail vehicle Uniroll from the railway emergency services. The modern vehicle was joined by his older counterpart, Unitarpan, belonging to a railway fan from Lubelszczyzna. A patrol car represented another branch of PLK, the Railway Guards. Officers provided short lectures regarding the safety on the railway areas.
