I received the following link from a friend who works for the Belgian Railways. It is a black and white video and there are many more links to our "vicinaux", in case you have not seen them yet. Enjoy!

Excellent. I would have been nice to have one of those steam trams passing your front garden, perhaps not so nice if you like clean windows and washing!

Ah, 1947: when almost everyone wore a hat and (at 1:25) a jaywalker in a fine pair of co-respondent's shoes! A fascinating glimpse of the past, trams and all. Thanks for posting this -really enjoyable viewing.

As I said previously , a great video, but it does show how dirty it was in those days. Having a steam tram passing your front door several times a day must have made the house filthy

Do you know what NYMR stands for? Sorry for the question is it something in North Yorkshire? Do you know if they will preserve it in that livery?

It's the North Yorkshire Moors Railway - it's a preservation line and has a lot of locomotives from different places, although mainly UK.

The locomotive is privately owned by the railways engineer whose nickname is piglet. The locomotive had just been repainted in that livery.
