This supposedly modern tram is actually two trams combined! It is composed of two underframes (from 1930s trams) connected by a custom-built central section. The resulting vehicle also received a newly designed bodywork. STIB built these cars in their own workshops in the early 1960s. This enabled them to produce a small series of trams that offered the same capacity as a motor-trailer combination. However, these vehicles only required one conductor instead of two in a motor-trailer combination. Later on, when drivers started collecting fares themselves, they even reverted to one-man operation. Because these trams were noisy and lacked passenger comfort, they only had a relatively short service life.
Today, the museum is open
from 1 to 6.30 pm
Please note that it is not possible to reserve seats on our vehicles running on our historical lines (Tervuren, Cinquantenaire, Stockel and BM) during weekends and holidays.
Birthdays, cocktails, company parties, silver and golden wedding anniversaries: they are all good reasons to rent one of our old trams or buses.
