¡Hola España! Noah’s Train in Madrid

26. 08. 2019

On September 5, Noah’s Train will stop in Madrid at Príncipe Pío station in Spain and in Barcelona on September 13.

The event is organized by RENFE in colaboration whith Transfesa Logistics this time. International top managers of European rail freight companies will take part and fight together for more freight on rails again.

The longest mobile artwork and the Rail Freight Forward coalition’s ambassador has been making its way across Europe and has not only stopped in at least 9 different cities. It also consists of 15 artistic containers, measuring a total of 180 metres in length.  

There’s no stopping Noah’s Train

Noah’s Train started its journey on 14/12/2018 in Katowice, Poland, and has been making its way across Europe since then. After Katowice, it travelled to Vienna, Berlin, Paris and Brussels, before continuing its journey to Rome, Munich, Luxembourg and Riga.

At its next stop in Madrid, local street artists will be painting two more containers, which will then be loaded on to the train.

In Madrid at Príncipe Pío station, the general public is invited to visit Noah’s Train, take photos and share them online to spread the message.

From 11th-12th September Noah’s Train travels further to Barcelona where it will be exposed at Francia Railway Station on the 13th of September.

The train, which aims to draw attention to the Rail Freight Forward coalition’s goal of achieving a modal shift from the roads to the rails of 30% by 2030, has set its sights on even bigger things, and will play an important role at the COP25 in Chile.

Good to know

Rail Freight Forward is a coalition of European rail freight companies that are committed to drastically reduce the negative impact of freight transport on the planet and mobility.

30% more freight on the rails by 2030 would avoid a million extra trucks being on Europe’s roads – as many as are on Germany’s transport market right now! If nothing gets done, it also means that freight transport’s current level of emissions – around 275 million tonnes of CO2 – would increase by 80 million tonnes a year.
