To the personal attention of all Members of the European Heritage Alliance

Dear Colleagues, 

I am delighted to share with you the final text of our EUROPE DAY MANIFESTO ‘Cultural Heritage: a powerful catalyst for the future of Europe’ which was presented to the public last Saturday. 

I wish to thank, most sincerely, all members of our European Heritage Alliance, who have sent us their explicit endorsement and some comments with regard to the draft text of our Manifesto. Together with Harry Verwayen and his team, we have done our utmost to take most of your input on board, while keeping the text as short and punchy. 
Please note that we have enlisted all European and international networks which form part of our Alliance as the co-signatories of this text. 
As you know, the Manifesto is accompanied by an annex which contains a non-exhaustive list of important reference documents. IMPORTANT: Additional links can always be added - please send them to Lorena since this list remains a work in progress.

From the President of Wattrain: “When this is over..."

  • Posted On: 13 April 2020
A member of Wattrain’s Board perfectly expressed our feelings: “When this is over... and who knows when that will be, WATTRAIN's role will be even more essential in helping our members and the wider heritage railway sector to recover from what are bound to be serious financial implications”.

Covid-19.. A Message from WATTRAIN's Board of Directors.

WATTRAIN can continue to function behind the scenes as we are all well spaced out,two in Australia, two in USA, one in Italy, three in the UK and one in Argentina. We communicate via the internet so we pose no risk to others.

 

During these unprecedented times, all we can advise our Heritage Railways and Tramways worldwide

is to follow the advice of your Governments and help prevent the transmission of this dreadful virus.
