19th century tram depot
1888 AD: construction workers start building the first hangars of the tram depot in Schepdaal. The site is situated on the busy tram line between Brussels and Ninove, which transports both people and cargo. The local railway connects regions that are not served by train.
There is a lot of activity on the site: carriages are parked and repaired, passengers get on and off. From 1910 untill 1929 the tram line is gradually electrified, but competiton with car traffic grows and trams are replaced by buses. In 1962 the depot is converted into a tram museum. Today you can still admire a unique collection of carriages.
