As part of the European Year of Rail, UIC is organising a photo competition through its TopRail (rail tourism) group, the theme being “My Secret Rail Spots”.

The aim of the competition is for railway employees to act as ambassadors for their railways and share their favourite rail spots to inspire passengers to hop on a train and get to know these places once it becomes possible to travel again.

Participants (UIC member employees) had six months, up to 10 September, to upload a picture of their secret railway spot to the PollUnit platform.

We thank all the participants for sending us wonderful photos of their favourite rail spots! To see the photos and vote, please visit the dedicated UIC TopRail page:

You can choose your favourite photo by voting between 11 September and 11 October.

The winner of the competition will be announced on 26 October during the next online TopRail Forum. (Registration online:

A TopRail committee will choose the best photos from different countries to create the UIC TopRail 2022 calendar. A selection of the photos with the most votes will also be published on the UIC Instagram page.
