Around the World in Trams: Antwerp 7026 & 7049

We move into Belgium for this week’s worldwide tram image as we feature the system in Antwerp.

Trams first ran in Antwerp in 1873 with conversion from horse to electric operation coming in 1902, with the network remaining in operation today. The system is metre gauge and currently consists of 14 routes, numbered between 2 and 24.

In this photo we see two PCCs on 3rd December 2004. In the front – and carrying an advertising livery – is 7026 which dates from 1961 whilst it is followed by 7049, dating from a year later, 1962. Both were built by BN.
