The International Steam Pages


Surviving Steam Trams of the World (North West Europe)

This page is one of a series of pages using the research of Don Sibley and Derek Rayner. Click one of the links below for the other pages:

Not quite steam trams but…

Definitely not steam trams but…


This page lists surviving steam trams of Belgium, France, the Netherlands (Holland) and the United Kingdom. The division is arbitrary, an attempt to avoid having a very large number of items on a single page.

For a historical survey of the types of locomotives (tram and conventional) used on Belgian tramways (Société nationale des chemins de fer vicinaux, SNCV) see http://www.passion-metrique.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5092&p=291061#p291061. (added 17th December 2013).
