Need to know

The Blue TrainPlease arrive at the Volvo Cars Visitor Centre at least 15 minutes before the train departs.

As the train trip goes inside the plant area, photography is prohibited through-out the trip. Visitors who bring a camera or camera phone will have to leave it with the train guide who will return it at the end of the trip.

The train goes through a workplace; all passengers must respect this and show consideration by not disturbing the people working in the factory. This means that, as a visitor, you must always remain in the carriage and keep your arms and legs inside.

Due to confidentiality and maintenance reasons the tour varies. We always aim to show as much ongoing activity as possible but as the plant or parts of it sometimes undergoes maintenance or updates we might encounter non-active stations or re-route the tour.
