This beautiful model railroad layout, called “The Tram of Westerlo”, was built by the Modelspoorclub de Kempen from Belgium. Westerlo is a municipality located in the Belgian province of Antwerp. More than 100 years ago, the municipality had a tram connection, namely the Tram Line 275, which connected Aerschot and Westerlo.
This tram line - some say tramway, streetcar or trolley car - was opened in 1911. On the Westerlo market square, there were four tracks in the beginning of the 20th century. The model railway layout is based on photographs from books and postcards about Westerlo. The diorama provides an overview of the houses on the south side, near the market square.
