The Little Train of Happiness

  • Train/tram/tourist train
  • Guided tour and discovery
  • Walking or hiking

An enchanting experience! Every Sunday and public holiday between May and September,  the Petit train du bonheur (or Little train of happiness) rides on the former n°115 SNCB line in Rebecq, passing the Senne and Bird Valley as it goes along...

History

  • This line carried passengers between Braine-l'Alleud and Braine-le-Comte for over a hundred years. It also served to transport goods, including the quarry of Quesnat's production. 
  • The line eventually went out of service but railway enthusiasts decided to use it for a touristic steam train instead: the perfect way to enjoy the countryside!
  • It's been thirty years already...

Journey

Departure: the former railway station of Rebecq
Itinerary: Rebecq-Rognon-Rebecq
