These highly elegant trams were delivered to Brussels in 1935. They are noteworthy for their exceptional power and comfort. After World War II, outside doors were fitted on the platforms. From then on, passengers had to enter through the rear door, pay their fare to a seated conductor and exit (only) through the front door. After this modification, this 5000 series mainly worked the Avenue de Tervuren lines. Their career ended in 1976 on line 81, one of the city’s longest. Tram 5008 has been preserved in its end-of-service state. This allows you to compare it to tram 5025 which has been restored to its initial state.

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.
