One of the most memorable moments of Sunday’s transport inaugurations was the opening of the new station at Howald.

Grand Duke Henri pulled a chord officially opening the important hub, not realising that his wife was standing underneath it.
Grand Duchess Maria Teresa landed the blow from the sign on the head but took it all in good spirits, judging by Paperjam footage from the incident. President of the chamber of deputies Mars Di Bartolomeo, pictured, looked on in horror.
Sunday also saw the launch of the tram, funicular and Pfaffenthal-Kirchberg gare. Thousands of people braved the heavy snow to be among the first to ride the new transport systems, which aim to reduce private car use in the capital. Since Sunday, all transport timetables in Luxembourg were updated.
