VVO Entdeckertag - "Explorer's day with VVO", April 6th, 2018

Parallel to the first day of the steam engine festival, Verkehrsverbund Oberelbe (VVO) celebrates its annual "explorer's day". On behalf of this, our historic electic engine E 77 10 will haul an "exploring train": Starting at Dresden Hauptbahnhof from platform 9 at 9:29 a.m., this four hours excursion will take you out to various terminal stations of S-Bahn Dresden: Tharandt, Meißen, Pirna, Dresden-Grenzstraße. Several freight-only sections will be covered besides ordinary passenger train routes.

You will stay on the train for the entire time. Two regular S-Bahn doubledecker railcars of S-Bahn Dresden will constitute the stock of coaches. Informative talks will be given throughout the journey.

Tickets are available at the "Kundencenter" (information desk) at Dresden Hauptbahnhof.

Adults per person: 10.00 EURO, children until their 14th birthday free of charge
