H. C. Andersen train

Denmark’s national poet Hans Christian Andersen loved to take the train on his many travels. So it was natural to mark his 200th birthday in 2005 with a train that was dedicated especially to him.

Actually, the train was Denmark’s first MY locomotive number 1101, which weighs 110 tons and was built in 1954. In the jubilee year, this train travelled around the Danish kingdom and advertised HC Andersen and his famous words: ‘to travel is to live.’

For this occasion, Skilte Centret was asked to cover train with an appropriate foil. It was a beautiful result with a blue foil cover that bore the poet’s name, year, birthday, decorations and the saying ‘to travel is to live’ translated into four languages.
