Each year FEDECRAIL organises an international conference on subjects important to heritage railways and railway museums and to foster mutual contacts and cooperation between its members. These conferences are targeted mainly at persons playing an active role in museum and tourist railways, railway museums, locomotive and rolling stock groups, national federations and other railway heritage bodies. Others with broader interests in railway heritage are also welcome to attend.
Preliminary notice that the 2017 Conference and General Assembly will be held on Friday 5.05 – Saturday 6.05, preceded on Thursday 4.05 meetings of our Working Groups and and Opening Reception in the evening. Our base will be the historic city of Bruges/Brugge in Belgium. A post-conference tour programme Saturday 6.05 - Wednesday 10.05 will include visits to a range of heritage railways, tramways and museums in Belgium, including the new SNCB/NMBS Train World Museum in Brussels. More detailed information of business themes and visit programme will be available in early/mid autumn.
We hope to be able to give more detailed information by November.
Further enquiries about the programme or participation may be send by email or addressed by phone or letter to the conference manager.Top
