History of the ZNTK hall, which currently houses the Magnum Arena

The plant was established in 1910 as Eisenbahn-Hauptwerkstatt Danzig-Troyl (Main Railway Workshop Gdańsk-Trojan). The plant was equipped with the largest industrial halls in Gdańsk and Pomeranian voivodeship.

After the end of World War I, compliant to Article 107 of the Treaty of Versailles, in 1922 the plant and the former Imperial Shipyard in Gdańsk were transferred for 50 years free lease to the newly created international company: International Shipbuilding & Engineering Co Ltd.

During World War II, the plants were managed by the German Reich Railways

After the liberation in 1945, the plant was called the Main PKP Railway Workshop Gdańsk-Trojan. From 1952 Railcar Repair Plant. At a period, the plant employed over 3,000 employees.

Interesting facts:

  • in 1942–1945 german navy produced torpedo boat hulls in the building
  • in 1958 dozens of buses for PKS were manufactured here, based on chassis with Leyland engines, they had bodywork and internal equipment taken from railcars.
  • using jet engines from MiG aircraft, the plant made several dozen snow plows.
  • for the needs of the emerging Fast Urban Railway (SKM) in the Tri-City, among others, ZNTK Gdańsk rebuilt Berliner S-Bahn wagons received as part of war compensation.

Nowadays:

Currently, the building is after a thorough and expensive renovation. Magnum Arena has been created in one separated part of the building as a place for ASG paintball games.

 

The building is under the care of a Gdansk historical building and monuments conservator.
