The support of the Topex Group

The Topex Group – the leader in the distribution of hand and power tools once again positively responded to our call for support. The company donated to us an inverter welder from the “Graphite” line of products. This new device will speed up the metal jobs by the rolling stock and other works in the shed. It will also help to develop the welding skills of our volunteers.  We would like to say big thanks for the support!


Paying tribute to the murdered

As in the previous year, we took part on 1st August in the ceremony by the monument commemorating the Pawiak’s prisoners, executed at the Skierniewice railway station during the end of Second World War. Our delegation, along the representatives of City Council, veterans, scouts, members of reconstruction group 26th Infantry Division and citizens of Skierniewice, put a symbolic bunch of flowers under the monument.

409! This is the exact number of the guests who decided to visit us on the August Open Day. As far as we can recall, this is the highest number of visitors present in the Shed on this month. We are really glad that the interest in the Engine Shed is still increasing. We would like to say a big “thank you” to those who visited us on the 1st August and we would like to invite all those interested in the history of railways to visit us on three consecutive occasions in September: traditional Open Day on 5th September and two Special Open Days during the Festival of Flowers, Fruits and Vegetables in Skierniewice (19th and 20th September).
