Welcome to the official website of
v.z.w. Steam railway Dendermonde-Puurs
The association without lucrative purpose Steam railway Dendermonde-Puurs was founded in 1977 with the goal of conserving historical Belgian railway equipment and rolling stock. We try to give passengers a feel of how a railway company used to work in the past.
The association rents railway line 52 Dendermonde-Puurs from the Belgian National Railways. The railway is 14km long and meanders through the beatiful landscape along the river Schelde and nature of Klein-Brabant. Along the line you will find interesting sights and picturesque villages which are also easily accesible by foot or bike.
During the journey we provide four stops. In the station of Baasrode-Noord you can admire our authentic locomotives and carriages. This is also the place were our workshop and the SDP-BVS bookshop are located. The train also stops in Sint-Amands, Oppuurs and Puurs. This is the terminating point of the line. The station of our line is just by the old signal box, aproximately 150 metres from the station of the National Railways.
Fancy a day out with a steamtrain through the land of the Schelde? Our heritage train rolls out every sunday from july, august and septembre..
