from the archive: 125 years of the Belgian Coastal Tramway

In 2010 the Belgian Vicinal (by now called De Lijn in this part of the country) celebrated the 125th birthday of trams with many visiting tramcars. We went to see the big parade on June 25th. This is another post from our old tramwaymuseum.net website. Read More

from the archive: Milano Ventottos

Another blast from the past (this time from our old webpage ventotto.info). In 2008 we published a post detailling the history of the Peter Witt cars of ATM Milano. Yes, all except one car have been modified with a rear door for a very long time and thus are no longer true Peter Witts. We Read More

Museum Trams in Hainaut and the Ardennes

Whilst preparing the “from the archive” posts from our old website trammuseum.net we noticed that we had only shown a small selection of photos there dealing with the museum trams of ASVi and TTA (and the commercial Grottes de Han operation). We have put them all together here including much additional material, old and new Read More

from the Archive: Schepdaal Tram Museum over the years

For many years we ran the trammuseum.net website. For a long time it was the unofficial homepage of the museum (because there was nothing else available). When the museum was leased out by De Lijn (they already have a much larger tram/transport museum in Antwerp) the new operators objected to us running this page with Read More

From the Archive: The End of the Laziali to Pantano Interurban – A Visit to Roma

We first published this post in 2008 in a now discontinued blog about the Milano trams when the line was shortened to Giardinetti. In 2015 the line was further shortened to the depot at Centocelle. Recently it was announced that the line will be converted to 1435mm gauge starting in 2023 (all the way back Read More
