For the celebration of the 175th anniversary of the Belgian Railways, Cinematek (helped by SNCB) publishes a DVD on the rail history in Belgium. Documentaries, newsreels and archive material show the iron way in all its glory. When the first train joined Brussels and Mechelen in 1835, history changed up a gear. Twelve archive films illustrates this history of the Belgian railways.
