Smoke column turns into a museum object
18 September 2020
In February we already reported the removal of the smoke pole or smoke column from all train stations. That has now been realized. Today the contractor delivered a beautiful copy to the museum. This donation from ProRail makes this "dirty ashtray" a symbol of an era in which cigarettes were still tolerated. That time is over, smoking is prohibited in public transport and all its premises. From now on, the smoke column will continue as a museum object, for the time being in the reserves. One time it will serve a new museum presentation.
