3/11/2019: SNCV trailer A.1584, progress of its restoration

Click here for a slide show of the restoration

Dear all,

The SNCV trailer A.1584 is now complete.

A professional painter has been chosen and has reserved the necessary time in January and February in order to prepare the car for its final paintwork.
The TRAMANIA team will deal with the varnish of the inside woodwork, as well as precious items like the light lanterns, etc.
In March, temperature allowing, the final ivory enamel paint will cover the trailer.
Original SNCV coat of arms have been made and car numbers will be hand painted, ready for a final coat of anti-scratch varnish.

We expect an exhibition in Apri at the Tranpsort Museum of Liège / Musée des Transports de Liègel.
A programme of runs will be coordinated with the TTA line / Tramway Touristique de l’Aisne, owner of the car.

A little bit of patience in order to admire this trailer, unique in Belgium, by its age and technology.

Book – Vicinal from Melreux

NOTE: This book is published in French language only

Voici deux nouveaux livres de Georges Henrard, consacrés aux lignes vicinales raccordées à la gare de Melreux, dans le format de son livre sur la ligne Spa-Verviers.

Le premier tome est voué à la ligne Melreux – La Roche (1886-1958) [136 pages 166 photos 9 plans 25×21 cm].

Le second à la ligne Comblain-la-Tour – Manhay – Melreux (1912-1959) [152 pages 190 photos 30 plans 14 documents 25×21 cm].

La description de chaque ligne, depuis la planche à dessin jusqu’à la fin des services ferrés, est abondamment illustrée de cartes postales, photos, horaires, plans de voies et billets, enrichie d’anecdotes du cru et du contexte historique.

L’auteur nous épargne une Xème évocation de la genèse de la SNCV et la section relative au matériel roulant évite aussi toute duplication en se concentrant sur le matériel propre à chaque ligne, bravo.

Le tome 1 : 43 EUR ; le tome 2 : 53 EUR. Les deux tomes : 88 EUR.
Ces prix incluent le port en Belgique.
A verser au compte de Tramania BE 41 0001 3319 1710
