The Orient Express is an abandoned train somewhere in Belgium. The train is of type 620 that was once the pride of the Belgian Railways.

The train was introduced in 1939. It is one of two remaining trains that still exist. The Belgian government once had the idea to store this train in a railway museum, but these plans have never been implemented.

The last time the train was in use was in 2009. Unfortunately, this train shows that the decay can strike very well in less than 10 years.

Is The Oriënt Express easy accessible?
The whole area is secured by fences. Entering is quite difficult, but because the terrain is quite large, there is always a hole in the fence. The trainstation is very near so we didn’t got noticed by people working at the station.

Is The Oriënt Express secured by alarms camera’s or guards?​
At these types of locations it is always good to watch out. The site is well guarded by cameras. We were happy to train at an unguarded moment to take pictures.
