In between the trains will be various art installations, such as the Sensorgan’s light spectacle, and the LiGHT-UP collective, where you can legally leave your tag, sign or drawing on the antique train wagons.
Film fanatics can recline on a Fatboy bean bag chair in an eccentric room full of rarities and knick knacks, and watch classic films and documentaries.
