VIDEO | Trams in Antwerp in 1993

on

1993 was a big year for Antwerp. It was Cultural Capital of Europe and it gave the city many cultural events and a sense of pride. For Antwerpians over a certain age, it’s memorable.

I was 12 then so my memories are clouded. But this video of trams in Antwerp is quite a throwback.

In 1991 local bus and tram companies in Flanders were merged into De Lijn, but on the footage you can still see PCC trams in the old red and white MIVA livery. MIVA stood for Maatschappij voor het Intercommunaal Vervoer te Antwerpen.
