Planes, Trains and Automobiles

150 years and 3 days ago (May 25, 1873) the first horse drawn tram rode through Antwerp. To celebrate this milestone they organised a parade and expo of historical trams as well as current trams that are still in use today.

Here's an impression of some of the historical trams

1: #9994 and the horse-drawn tram coming up side-by-side

2: #200, the oldest electric tram still in operation

3: #8821, converted to become a maintenance and construction tram, behind it it's modern equivalent (Unimog)

4: #5351 on the Mexico bridge

5: Coachman of the horse-drawn-tram

6: Another one of the horse-drawn-tram

7: Part of parade set up at the turning loop at the Antwerp Harbour House (terminus of line 24)
