Launch of the Association OBJECTIF TRAIN DE NUIT
We have recieved this press release:
“Together for night trains all over Europe”
On June 7, 2019 at the Gare de Lyon in Paris, committed citizens, entrepreneurs and elected officials launched an association to revitalize night trains in Europe. In a context where no one can deny the phenomenon of climate change and damage to the environment, it is necessary to offer credible and economic alternatives to citizens for their journeys across Europe.
To manifest is good, to act is better. This is why personalities from different horizons have decided to join forces to create the Association Objectif nuit train.
Vice-President Isabelle Chevalley, a Swiss parliamentarian, explains why this name (“Luna Train”) was chosen: “At the time, Tintin was aiming to walk on the moon, our goal is simpler, it is about disposal of users in Europe of night trains “.
This association will aim to carry out the study of economic and technical feasibility then the implementation of a renewed offer of night trains, with the particularity to associate the sleeping cars (sleeper cars beds) and freight cars.
The president of the Association, Eric Boisseau explains that: “This mix aims to achieve each year the economic and financial balance of the operation of these trains. “
A support committee has already been created, made up of personalities from several European countries, including a number of French and Swiss elected representatives who have shown their support for this project for the future.
We have a responsibility to future generations and we can not hide behind the difficulties of not moving forward. We are convinced that together, it is possible!
