Railway Centenaries

Railway Centenaries.

Reference has previously been made in these pages to the centenary which is this year being celebrated by the German Railways, and also to the fact that 1935 marks the one-hundredth anniversary of the opening of the Great Western Railway of England. In addition to these centenaries, we celebrate this year the hundredth birthday of the Belgian railways.

The first steam passenger train on the continent of Europe ran from Malines to Brussels on May 5, 1835.
