Horse-drawn Car 7 (1869-1882)

Hippo 7This double-decker car was used on the very first tram line in Brussels, on the route between Porte de Schaerbeek and the Bois de la Cambre. Considered a museum piece as early as 1878, it was only used for parades and exhibitions. Later, this vehicle became a part of the Museum of Art and History’s collection at the Cinquantenaire Park. It is probably the oldest tram in the world still in its original condition.
