HIIROLA - railway station - 5.10.2013 - old timer train

On the annual Kalvitsa-day it is possible to take the train from different (closed) stations and to drive in an old train. This year many people in Hiirola have taken this train.

In Hiirola there were open doors and people were invited to have a look inside the old station. Around the building different art works were presented.

In Kalvitsa a new attraction has been introduced. In the backyard a part of a track is constructed and it looks if the train will pass in a few minutes.


Welcome to the railway station of Hiirola.
It is the first time the station is open for public.

It is a pleasure to meet you and other people from Hiirola.
You can look inside, drink a cup of coffee.
There is a lottery which supports the art activities in Hiirola Railway Station.
We have information about the art and culture association AREFS (AREFS taide ja kulttuuri ry) which organizes the art programs as THIS IS OUR NATURE, THIS IS MY BACKYARD and the new AiR (artist-in-residence) program THE NEXT STATION.

You can also take the train to Mikkeli or to Kalvitsa.

The complete schedule for the train on 5.10.2013 can be read in this PDF file.
