Class Ls40-4544 back to service


Some time ago we mentioned that we are going to overhaul our main shunting vehicle – diesel class Ls60-143. As the majority of the bodywork will be disassembled and the main framework immobilized to carry out the maintenance, we needed a replacement. For this purpose, we choose class Ls40-4544, which so far was sealed in a storage. We have one more class Ls40 shunting engine – number 4572 – which underwent some refurbishment, but due to the general wear of the gearbox we would like to save it from shunting work.

Ls40-4544 was unsealed, the engine went through the mandatory check-up and replacement of all lubricants and the cooling liquid. After that, the engine made its first steps in years on the tracks of the shed.

Bringing class SR71-04 back to life

The enthusiasts of the diesel vehicles from our association took advantage of the warmer winter days to complete a thorough check-up of the engine and electric circuits of the line maintenance vehicle class SR71-04. On 2nd March, after small repairs and replacing missing parts, it was possible to start the engine and test out the pneumatic installation. Our aim is to bring the vehicle back to full operation and present it in motion, at least on the premises of the Shed.

Another support for PARE


At the beginning of February, the President of the city Skierniewice announced the results of a financing contest for the non-government organisations. We are happy to report, that our project to replace the ties in the tracks of the shed will be supported with the amount of 16 800 PLN. This year we want to re-lay the tracks 14 and 15 between the turntable and the roundhouse. Start of the works – beginning of March.

That’s not the end of happy news. We are a couple of steps form finalizing a sponsorship agreement for the renovation of one of the vehicles. More details to follow.

All these financial helps requires a guarantee from our side in a form of the own capital. This is why we would like to again ask you to support us with your 1% of the income tax. To complete this, remember to indicate our organization as the recipient of the 1% by providing our KRS number 0000216091.
