In honor of the elegant locomotive "Cockerill 503", named after the British-Belgian industrialist John Cockerill, the Fond-de-Gras puts on an event with a British and Irish touch.
The Train 1900 railway hall will host a multitude of stalls of English and Irish products such as "Basics & Bespoke" clothes, whiskey, English books, cigars and more.
In addition to the running of the old stream train, traditional tea time and snacks will be provided in the train station buffet throughout the day, as well as the exhibition of two authentic English vehicles, a London taxi and a Routemaster double-decker bus. The British band Last Order will perform some Irish music to accentuate the atmosphere.
The visitors can see the Fond-de-Gras at Minett Park via the Train 1900, which leaves from its departure platform in Pétange. Visitors will ride aboard the Cockerill 503 locomotive, along the Minièresbunn mining train line, for an impressive journey in the heart of the former mine site.
