Hello Train - geocathcing game logo

Come celebrate the Mobility week and the European Year of Rail with us from 16 September to 7 October, by taking part in Hello Train, a virtual game that is educational and fun!

The SNCB is taking part in the European Year of Rail by organising, from 16 September to 7 October, a big geocaching game at 25 of its stations. Through this game, the SNCB is looking to show the general public how it is preparing its future. The aim of the game is to find 25 objects and 10 hotspots linked to five major SNCB priorities: safety and punctuality, satisfied customers, our staff, sustainability, station accessibility.

To play, download the application (via Google play and the App store) and register.
Like more information? Find our hostesses on-board our promotional caravan parked in front of our major stations. They will help you start the game and win your first points.

Take part in our game and travel with us, as a family or with friends, to uncover what goes on behind the scenes at SNCB!
