Welcome to WATTRAIN

Since being founded in 2010, WATTRAIN (The World Alliance of Tourist Trams and Trains) has been at the forefront in promoting the interests of the owners and operators of tourist trams and trains.

Its aims are to represent the interests of such operators on a global scale, to advise and assist its members on technical, legal, environmental, cultural, commercial, marketing and other matters, to exchange ideas and information, to encourage best practice and to promote the sector generally. And to build a repository of useful railway related material and sources for member railways and individuals..

In particular, it seeks to ensure that traditional skills are passed on to the next generation. The strategy for achieving those aims is set out in Wattrain’s Strategic Plan.

WATTRAIN held its last conference in Frisco,Texas, (30 November -4th December 2018) ,where speakers addressed topical issues and were updated on technical developments of interest to tram (trolley) or train operators. “Addressing Tomorrow’s Challenges with Today’s Resources” was the conference theme.

The Conference was successfully Hosted by the Museum of the American Railroad.

Over the coming weeks,  the presentations at the Conference will appear on this website under the WATTRAIN Frisco 2018 heading, and will be available in English and Spanish.
