Early start in the morning while Proj3ct M4yh3m caught some much needed beauty sleep in the car. Behind Closed Doors, Kriegffe9 and myself checked out this abandoned train.
It was in use between 1957 and 1986 providing a service between Belgium and the Netherlands It was the first Electric train to be used between Brussels and Amsterdam . A total of three different classes of seating one class open plan and 2 luxury classes with seating in compartments to provide more peace and privacy.
It has now been taken on by the Hondekop foundation who plan to transport it back to the Netherlands and restore it to its former glory.
At some point in 2014 I also visited the Orient Express another abandoned train in Belgium.
