Alright.. 2nd page


Benonie I cannot wait to see more pictures! I find Belgian cities to be very beautiful.. especially in Flanders.

Oh my dayum. Very nice shots. I'll make sure to visit that area next time I'm in Antwerp (whenever that may be).

The last picture is very interesting. The interior of most old trams has been modernized years ago, but for whatever reason not in all of them. The old interior consists of leather seats and old lamps. Also, the bell to signal a stop and the door mechanism are simple and very old fashioned mechanisms. Furthermore, the old doors are very narrow and the interior side is a bit hollow.
If you want to drive with an old Antwerp pcc tram before they are replaced, you should try to find one of these.

Well, I was surprised to see such a vintage tram in regular service, myself. But it felt good, it reminded me of my time in Antwerp decades ago, and of travels outside the EU.

As Benonie shows I´ve missed some interesting parts of Antwerp and that´s why I´m keen to comeback. Arriving to Antwerp by train and be received by such architecture is a sign that you will like the city a lot
Love that station and loved the city even though I was there just for a few hours.
Keep them coming!

Unfortunatly I didn't take lots of pictures of the interior of Central Station. I was in a hurry to catch my train back. Anyway, that part is for the end of this thread. So keep watching Andre.

Great new shots I've only seen the common and popular parts of Antwerp in just one day. Not nearly enough!
