Remarks & Notes 
Train World at Bruxelles Schaarbeek with the belgian railway history of the 19th century. The first railway in Belgium was opened in 1835 from Mechelen to Bruxelles. From left to right are exhibited: 0-6-0 T shunter # 1152 from 1879. The 2-2-2 locomotive "Pays de Waes" is the oldest preserved in Belgium. It was designed by Gustave De Ridder. This locomotive was the number 2 of the private company 'Chemin de fer d'Anvers à Gand'. It was built together with 8 identical locomotives between 1844 and 1846. Between 1844 and 1896 they pulled passenger trains on the line Antwerpen-Linkeroever - Gent via Sint-Niklaas and Lokeren. This line was the first private concession in Belgium, awarded to De Ridder in 1842. It was a narrow gauge line (1,145 m instead of the standard 1,435 m), so the distance between the wheels of the locomotives was smaller. When the Belgian State took over this line in 1896 it made a standard gauge of it. 4-4-0 express train locomotive # 18 051 from 1905 for 120 km/h.
