The Moravian-Silesian Railway Museum with the cooperation of the Moravian-Silesian region organized a fun afternoon event called Fine Summer 2018 already for the 7th time in a row. This time with the theme of „Railway and the Republic 100 years ago“.
The visitors coud have seen a parade of the rail technology (the locomotive E 479.0 and T 478.1). It was accompanied by an erudite explanation of the guide who has gained his knowledge from his own long-standing rail practice. Traditionally the biggest interest was about Sicova little railway. Those children who had a competitive spirit took part in the outdoor stage where many interesting competitions happened under the guidance of an experienced and handsome presenter dressed in a historical robe. Many visitors were also interested in a performing of modern techniques of SŽDC's Fire Brigade.
The whole atmosphere was great thanks to the music group called "Potulní muzikanti" and you could have also sang with a barrel organ. The parade was very interesting however the important part of this event was food as well. The visitors could have tried a Potato Soup which was available just straight next to the entrance and another delicious refreshment (including traditional beer) was available in the tent called “Sheep” whos owner is Sepetná, v.o.s.
The weather wasn’t as beautiful due to the clouds and showers however the museum space was fully covered by a roof and you could have seen a valuable tour of the current exhibition – „130 years of the Moravian-Silesian Railway“. Plus the tickets were available just for the half price. We we nicely surprised by the number of our visitor on the model railway and on the trainer.
All we can say is that the event was very succesfull since the number of visitor was close to 500.
A big thanks to our organizers and participants of the event, preferely to ČD, a.s., ČD Cargo, SŽDC, National organization and AWT.
