Horse Tram 8853

The authentic horse trams have all but disappeared. This open summer carriage was first used in 1912 in the region around Brussels. It is a vehicle that was not originally used in Ghent but bears some similarities with it. A fairground operator bought the tram with the aim of creating a tram line in the Bokrijk open-air museum. After restoration, the tram moved to the coast in 1989. Some might recognize this tram: it also operated during the Ghent Festivities in 1984 and 1987, between the Belfry and St. Jacob's.
