A few days ago, Noah's Train, the "longest moving art work in the world" (over 200 meters in length), arrived in Spain.

This 12-container freight train is painted by renowned European urban artists to raise awareness about the environment and the need to increase the use of the train for commercial transport.

This initiative of Rail Freight Forward is traveling throughout Europe.

The strong shark and the blue whale, the mighty tiger and the zebra were the first animals to be painted on the containers in December 2018 by sedr84 and samerups in Katowice, Poland.

In January 2019, CONCRETE came next with the kingfisher, the flamingo, the gecko and the orca in Vienna.

In Berlin, two weeks later, the brown bear, the ladybird, the monkey and a second tiger were added by RIOT 1394 and Skenar73.

RETRO and Monsieur HOBZ designed the elephant and the toucan as well as the crocodile and the fish in Paris in February.

In the same month, SMOK and RiseOne brought the horse, the octopus, the crab and the tree frog on board in Brussels.

At the event in Rome in May, Mr.Wany and Neve crafted the wolf and the butterfly, the magpie and the snake.

In Switzerland it was the ibex’s and the hard-working ant’s turn at the hands of Chromeo Spreadcolor and Rips1.

Daniel Mac Lloyd and Alain Welter painted the owl and the red kite as well as the fox and the raccoon in Luxembourg in July.

The newest containers added in Madrid display a turtle, a parrot, an osprey and the lynx, painted by Sabek and Mister Piro.
