2018 has been designated European Year of Cultural Heritage. The European Commission’s aim is to get more people interested in Europe’s cultural heritage and to give them a sense of belonging to a common European area. The motto for the year is: “Our heritage – link between past and future”. The historic railways are also called upon to place their activities under this motto in 2018. Here is an example from the Netherlands: The “Stichting Museum Buurtspoorweg” (MBS) uses a banner to draw attention to the Year of Cultural Heritage.
