"The Renaissance of the night train"
Back on Track Belgium vzw-asbl organised a European poster competition " The Renaissance of the Night Train".
The poster competition took place within the European Year of Rail as an official #EUYearofRail event. Objective was to promote the night train within the European transport sector goals formulated in the European Green Deal.
Our poster competition is a nod to the past of graphic art, that we all know from the posters of illustrious night trains such as "Ostende-Vienne Express", not forgetting that today's European transport sector has changed a lot.
