Open day 2019
2019 Open Day with TT-Club meeting on Saturday, 15 June 2019
This year’s “Open Day” event with the TT-club meeting is slowly but surely looming on the horizon. Here we have summarised all the important information concerning all aspects of this "grand” event for you: the things you can experience this year on 15 June (from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm) will certainly do justice to an anniversary event: not only model railways will be the focal point of the action on this day but also the “life-size railway”.
We are delighted that, in order to realise this project, we have once again been able to win over our renowned partner from the transport and logistics industry: ITL which forms part of the CAPTRAIN railway company that operates internationally. There will be a joint open day this Saturday, 15 June, at their headquarters in Pirna, in conjunction with our activities in Sebnitz.
In this way not only all the model railway enthusiasts, but also fans of the original railway model will really get their money’s worth on this day.
Countless activities await you on this day at the event locations of Sebnitz and Pirna: The large model railway exhibition with sets with different nominal scales, manufacturers and clubs, the interesting show of locomotives in the workshop hall, trips in the driver's cabs, the family festival or the children's playground paradise will delight you or your family.
We also offer you guided tours through our production areas, presentations of new products and rounds of talks. Of course, our model railway gallery with its museum and shop is open for you, whilst the popular special sale will also hold also sorts of surprises in store for you.
What’s more two Special models await you on this special occasion.
You can also travel by public transport between these two event locations (Sebnitz and Pirna). You can find out more about the shuttle services here.
And here are two further very special items on the agenda:
Sebnitz event location: Visit our Czech cooperation partner, the "OK-Form" company in the neighbouring town of Dolni-Pustevna. Numerous products of our range are being produced there including the track material. The shuttle service to OK-Form departs every hour from the location of the TILLIG company. Please note that only a limited number of places are available for the visit to OK-Form; the visit and the shuttle service are free of charge. The use of this offer is only possible if you register in advance using this Online form. So register straight away (please bring your valid Personal Identity Card or Passport with you on the day of the event):
Thank you for your interest in the visit in OK-Form. Unfortunately, all available places is already reserved.
Pirna event location: We offer something very special for all keen amateur photographers before the official opening: You will have the opportunity to drive into the ITL grounds for a "photographer's hour" before the visitors arrive in their droves, so you can capture your railway motifs in peace. Participation in the photographer’s hours is only possible if you purchase a ticket in advance (start: Saturday, 7:50 am at the Pirna railway station, price per person: € 5.00). Reservation only via this Online form. Please note that only a limited quota of tickets is available for this.
Thank you for your interest on the "photographer's hour". Unfortunately, all available places is already reserved.
We would like to thank all of those people in advance who are actively involved in this year's event. Unfortunately we had refuse admission to some interested parties due to the countless number of registrations we have received. Maybe you will be more successful next time (therefore: start thinking about 2020 already).
You can obtain additional information about the event here:

This year we have set up the workshop in TILLIG’s canteen.

It is possible to collect the construction sets throughout the whole day.

Passenger cars and Matador kits are once again available for purchase and assembly in the assembly department.
Up to now the presentation of new products at an information stand in the TILLIG tool construction sector was always a popular place to go for visitors. We do of course want to offer something similar this time as well. In addition to viewing the work statuses of our new products you have the option of talking shop with our product development staff and asking them a few questions.

The Family Festival in the company grounds:
The Open Day at ITL/CAPTRAIN will enable you to gain fascinating insights into the work and fleet of this railway company. It is unquestionably something that you would hardly be able to experience anywhere else. This includes for instance tours of the ITL premises including a visit of the workshop hall (entrance is free) in addition to trips in the driver's cabs. Of course a large presentation of vehicles has also been prepared. This is not just in the form of the locomotives and carriages of ITL/CAPTRAIN but also with the addition of quite a few attractive "guest vehicles”. At the same time you can experience a large exhibition of model railways featuring around 20 exhibitors.
Promotions, music and entertainment on the festival stage await you at the ITL festival site.
Model railway exhibition:
At the same time we offer you a model railway exhibition in Pirna with some 20 different model railway sets and additional exhibitors. You can obtain an overview of it here:

Observe the following here: Due to the fact the event offers are identical in the morning and afternoon, we recommend that you simply divide the event day in half and then return to the other respective location at noon. This means you will make the best possible use of your time so you don’t miss out on anything on this day.
