April 2015: The extension of the TTA tourist line is opened

The last SNCV trams ran between Melreux and Manhay in 1959.

Since 1966, touristic trams are running between Erezée-Blier-Amonines-Forges and Dochamps.

In 2013 -14, the line has been rebuilt between Forges-Dochamps and extended towards Lamorménil.

Four km of new tracks are added to the existing 8km. The longest touristic tram of Belgium.

The first public service between Erezée and Lamorménil has taken place by April 5th at 10h30.
