The reading section

The reading section is a passenger car that has been specially furnished to facilitate reading. The section is located in the upper level of an Intercity, and will be open to passengers in the very near future.

Have a seat

We are currently working on the furnishings of the reading section. The new section will not run on a specific route, so you might come across it anywhere in the country. As soon as the section is on the rails, we will inform you on this page.

What is the idea?

The reading section makes it even more pleasant and convenient to immerse yourself in a good book. With pleasant carpets, reading lamps and bookshelves, it will give you the sensation of traveling in a mobile library. Every table will be furnished with a book, and travelers can feel free to browse through the selection for something good to read during their journey. Or to exchange it for a book of their own. The idea is that there should always be a book on the table, so eventually the section should become a national book exchange system.
With the reading section, we aim to offer a pleasant travel experience by putting into practice our conviction: 'The train is the ideal place to read.'
