Alstom launches ‘3 minutes stop’, an entertaining website for learning about trains

posted on Oct 21, 2015

What is a pantograph?  What year was the first locomotive manufactured? How can a metro run without a driver? Where do trains sleep at night?
All these questions, and more, are answered on “3 minutes stop”, an entertaining and informative website launched by Alstom to explain the world of trains to audiences of all ages.

The “3 minutes stop” website features three comprehensive sections: an infographic, a quiz, and a dictionary. The infographic section provides clear and concise answers to questions through animations and short texts, while the quiz section allows the discovery of key figures related to the rail sector. The new website wouldn’t be complete without a dictionary explaining in a few simple words what a skirt, a bogie or a catenary is.

New content will be regularly posted, shared and shareable through social media. The “3 minutes stop” website is your first stop for clear and simple information on the world of trains.

Go to www.3minutesstop.alstom.com and learn everything you always wanted to know about the trains.
