What an anniversary!


On 1st October 1845 a first scheduled train of Warsaw-Vienna Railroad has reached Skierniewice. On 3rd October, together with President of City Skierniewice and The Association of Transportation Engineers we celebrated the round 170th anniversary of this important event in Skierniewice’s history.

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing track works on the neighboring railway station which temporarily cut the Shed off of the rest of line, many attractions was impossible to be executed. With regret we had to cancel the historical train with real steam engine or the exhibition of the contemporary rolling stock. Nevertheless, we decided to change the nature of the event to a more family-oriented. There were plenty of attractions for the youngest, those older and the oldest.


The Shed was open to the public from 11AM, but the official opening took place on 12AM with participations of

  • Jarosław Chęcielewski, the Deputy President of City Skierniewice,
  • Dorota Przybyła, vicepresident of The Association of Transportation Engineers,
  • Judyta Kurowska-Ciechańska, president of PARE.

We were also honored to visit other notable guests: Vicemarshal of Parliament – Mrs. Elżbieta Radziszewska, Deputy Dorota Rutkowska, the President of the branch of the Monuments Protection Office in Łódź – Mrs. Katarzyna Starecka and many other representatives of Voivodship, City offices and the companies from railway transportation branch.

After the official part, one could listen to the concert of a City’s Brass Band conducted by Szczepan Bieszczad or taste the special anniversary cake.

… and those contemporary, in service on the railway.


The promotional stand of Łódź Agglomeration Railway caused a furore among the youngest guests. Thanks to the model shop Loko-Model, visitors could also see how a digitally controlled railway models work and company Thales Polska sp. z o.o. gave a presentation of the modern signals.

There would be no event in Shed without the traditional sightseeing inside the roundhouse or the exhibition of signaling devices. There were also two new exhibitions to visit: “Paper heritage of Warsaw-Vienna Railroad in its 170th Anniversary” by Paweł Mierosławski and “Steam shortens distances” by Aneta Majak and Andrzej Paszke.
