Having had 130 cars participating last year, “Vintage Car Day” attracted a large crowd of enthusiasts who were able to admire fascinating cars in a particular historic and natural setting. This summer, this unique marriage between steam locomotives and vintage cars could only be repeated. The Fond-de-Gras site will welcome an outstanding collection of vintage cars from before 1970, pampered by collectors from all over the Greater Region.
Musical entertainment will be delivered by the jazz band « Blue Swining Dixie » (D) and « Kantri Klapp » (L).
As for the visitors, we couldn’t imagine a more delightful way than to join the Fond-de-Gras with the Train 1900, from its departure platform in Pétange (rue de Niederkorn, free parking). The scheduled departures are at 11:00, 11:50, 13:25, 14:15, 15:30, 16:15, 17:35, 18:20. Be careful, the schedule is different from the usual one.
The mining train "Minièresbunn", which leads you through an impressive journey in the heart of the mine, will count four departures: at 13:00, 15:00, 16:00 and 17:00
Inside the charming train station from Fond-de-Gras, grilled meats, pasta, fries, homemade cakes and refreshments will be available throughout the day.
For historical vehicle owners: For each displayed vehicle you are entitled to a ticket for the Train 1900, a drink and a light meal. Car access is easy from Niederkorn. Please note that historical cars must arrive by 13:00 at latest.
