Thanks to the photos from the collection of André Weis, we can offer you a unique look into the past of the “Atelier Bonnevoie”. After more than 60 years in operation, the building will be demolished to make way for the expansion of Luxembourg Central Station. A fifth and sixth platform will then help the station, which is the central junction of Luxembourg’s railway network, cope better with the high volume of rail traffic, including from the south.
