The SAVON-RADAN ryhmä is a collaboration group of railway stations along the railway in Etelä-Savo. The group has started their collaboration in 2013 to give attention to the heritage of old railway stations and to use its meaning as a source for innovative cultural and economic development in the field of art, technology, design and tourism and all what is related to these fields.

The SAVON-RADAN ryhmä is looking for local, regional and international collaboration to share their knowledge and experiences, and to exchange their expertise. This will contribute to challenge new conditions for living and working in the countryside.

The group is working together in different compositions, depending on the goal and the needed expertise.

This moment SAVON RADAN ryhmä is planning the program SAVON-RATA 125 with different kinds of activities in and around the railway stations along the Savo railway to celebrate the 125 year of this railway. With this program the group will present their involvement with the rural heritage including the railway, the characteristic stations, and the local societies.

SAVON_RADAN ryhmä has the intention to inform a wide audience about the status and development of the railway stations along the Savo-rail through publication on the internet.
It is possible to send information (in Finnish and/or English) about one or more railway stations to
We appriciate these information and will publish relevant information and images at the specific page of the station.
