January 27th 2021 – ‘150 years of Brussels Trams’

Postponed from March 2020.

Starting with a short horse tram route in 1869, the city of Brussels has grown its tram system to one of the largest in Europe and the 16th largest in the world.  Celebrating 150 years of continuous operation is no mean feat and there are plans to massively increase the number of routes and tramcars in operation. 

Ian Gledhill visited the city at the time of the celebrations and presents his experiences in this the last talk of the season.
