Berlin main station upper level

Celebration in Berlin: New night train

Back-on-Track has decided that we in cooperation with other train friends will make parties in Berlin both Sunday evening and Monday morning 9.-10. of December. And will appeal that our Vienna based colleagues will do the same in Vienna.

Sunday 9.12. We are celebrating the first departure of this new night train at the Berlin main station upper level. The new NightJet to Przemysl, Budapest and Vienna will depart from the top level. We will gather from 18:00. The train will have a 10 minutes stop and the departure is at 18:40 clock.

Bring multi-language posters, banners, bring balloons, wave with flags. Greet the first passengers. Joyful atmosphere!

As we know, to greet special trains and tour groups it is quite common and is not suppressed by the DB. That includes banners and loud voices!

After the departure a social gathering will take place somewhere on a coffee- or beer bar at the station.

Monday 10.12. we will meet at 8:30 morning to a registered event in the middle of the main station (indoor – street level, level 0) – see red dot on picture; two short speeches, and after that we will go (unofficially) to the arrival of the train at 9:16 on the upper level with our posters, banners, balloons, flags and use the photogenic view of the train and welcoming travelers. We will come back to the street level, and have a fresh report from COP24 in Katowice, since Lars Igeland is travelling by night to tell us about the COP!
