HISTORY OF THE ESCOBAR TRAIN MUSEUM
Event of re-enthronement of the image of the Virgin of Luján in Escobar Station - 08/12/2009.
The Ferroamigos Club Belén de Escobar does not yet find words of gratitude to Father Daniel Bevilacqua and his deacons of our Cocatedral Natividad del Señor, Volunteer Firefighters, Police of the province of Buenos Aires, Gauchas Groups, Santa María School, Municipal Traffic Direction, Trains of Buenos Aires (TBA) and in particular to the people of the party for their presence in the act of re-enthronement of the Image of the Virgin of Luján in Escobar station on December 8 last. It was for our institution pleasantly comforting the massive call, which exceeded our predictions and expectations maximally. We estimate that we greatly exceeded the 1500 people, to such an extent that the platforms of the station were insufficient to accommodate the populous retinue, finally locating us on the tracks. It is for us a pride to have participated in such a solemn act, linked from the beginning to the railway activity of our beloved city. Best regards, thank you very much to all Ferroamigos Club Belén de Escobar Train Museum.
