EntreLinhas - Festa do Ferroviário


Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone!


This year, the Municipality of Valongo will launch a unique railway-themed public festival in Portugal.

The EntreLinhas - Festa do Ferroviário will be held between August 26 through 28 and will have shows, exhibits, conferences, music concerts and street food.


The Maquetren module-based club Módulos de Comboios do Norte has confirmed their first public appearance since the COVID-19 pandemic started in 2020.

The railway club APAC - Associação de Amigos dos Caminhos de Ferro has also confirmed their presence in the event.


Here is the official poster for the event.

The EntreLinhas is officially open!


Today the conference was quite heated at the end, with people getting outraged from comments made by the coordinator of the Portuguese National Railway Plan, saying that "publishing studies for new lines and track improvement works would do more harm than good".


Besides the record time taken to organize the festival, there's still some interesting things to look forward to (model rail wise)!

Photos shall follow tomorrow! 🙂
