FEDECRAIL Conference 2023


In the spring of 2023, we will once again have the opportunity to meet not only online but also in person during our General Assembly and a conference. As we fully respect the fact that personal contacts are just as important for our members as the possibility of online meetings, we will organize the Annual General Meeting 2023 together with a conference as a hybrid event.

This time we have chosen Krems on the Danube in Austria as the conference venue, one of the oldest cities in Austria, a university town, an important railway junction and the “gateway” to the magnificent cultural landscape of the Wachau, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A worthy setting, then, to host the FEDECRAIL conference and serve as a starting point for a compact study tour programme for both young and experienced, young-at-heart museum railway enthusiasts. Danube University Krems – our important partner in the organization – is kindly providing us with premises and technical equipment.

We are currently in the process of preparing the conference programme and the supporting programme and will keep you informed; please also note the information on our homepage.

We are looking forward to many participants and specially to meeting you personally in Krems.
