Opened in September 2015, a new attraction awaits you in Brussels: Train World. The National Rail Museum opens its doors at Schaerbeek train station.
Treasures of the world of trains
Train world houses numerous treasures: Belgium's oldest conserved steam engine the "Pays de Waes" or the Type 12 class steam engine that broke a speed record in 1939.
You are also able to view genuine sumptuous royal carriages or climb into the stainless steel carriages of Trans-Europ-Express trains (the predecessor to the TGV train) which travelled Europe back in the days.
Have you always dreamt of driving a train? Train World puts you in the driving seat in its simulator!
In the cockpit, you can watch the scenery along the railway lines as it changed over the years.
