Lille: Discover an Exhibition … on the SNCF, at Saint-Sauveur Train Station

The Métalu A Chahuter collective is investing in the Saint-Sauveur train station in Lille (Nord) until Sunday, November 4, 2018, with an exhibition dedicated to SNCF. Details.

In addition to the exhibition Sportfoto , installed since early September 2018 in the station Saint-Sauveur of Lille (North) and other places of the city , another, on the SNCF has invested the premises of the former railway station. Details.

Anniversary event

Hotel Europa, transformed into a “Hotel of the station” sees stand, at its entrance, a big imposing clock, and a ticket composting machine (old-fashioned). It is the gateway to an exhibition by Metalu A Chahuter , dedicated to the French railway company.

It is on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the SNCF that the Metalu A Chahuter collective imagined this exhibition, in which you are in turn in a station, then in thematic rooms related to different aspects of the railways.

Berths, train corridor, railway apartment … You are literally immersed in the everyday life of SNCF agents, and can even discover old tools and lend you to the game of the train driver …

“Whether they are sound, interactive or visual, the environments created summon all the collective and affective imagination of the railway, “explains Lille 3000.”

You can book the Hotel from the train station (to enjoy it with family or friends), for a duration of one or two hours, Thursdays and Fridays from 5pm to 7pm, Saturdays from 12 midday to 2pm and 5pm to 7pm . It’s free !
