16 young people at the 12th Youth Exchange in Sweden

c

The 12th international FEDECRAIL Youth Exchange took place in Sweden. The meeting started on Friday 3 August in Uppsala. 16 participants arrived: 13 boys and three girls. They came from Spain, Ukraine, Great Britain, Germany and Romania. They spent the first days in Uppsala-Lenna. All the young people worked in the technology and in the trains to help the staff on board.

This summer there were problems with the hot and dry weather in Sweden, so that steam trains were not allowed to travel at first. Fortunately, rain started early enough so that the participants of the youth camp in Uppsala could still use the steam trains. Trips to the Swedish railway museum in Gävle, a tram excursion in Stockholm and the visit of a military fortress in Oxelösund were undertaken during the week.

The second half of the exchange was spent in Malmköping in the Tram Museum. Here, too, the young people worked in technology and sold tickets in the trams. The closing dinner traditionally took place on the last Saturday evening and was attended by FEDECRAIL Vice President Heimo Echensperger.
