Come and celebrate our railway heritage and the 30th anniversary of the Chemin de Fer du Bocq!

On 13, 14 and 15 August 2022, come and celebrate our railway heritage on one of the most beautiful lines in Belgium.

During the three days of the festival, you will have a superb experience in the fabulous world of the train of the past, the present and (almost) the present:

  • Departure of a train every hour to discover the entire line of the Chemin de Fer du Bocq (Duration of the complete journey: 1H55).
  • Exhibition and/or circulations of old and modern locomotives, carriages and wagons from different railway companies in addition to the PFT equipment.
  • Various activities for young and old, train fans and others… fun for all!

More details in the drop-down menus below.


Due to some last minute surprises, we have some information to send you:

  1. TUC RAIL: the 7800 locomotive is CONFIRMED! An incredible surprise!
  2. STEAM and FIRE: due to the severe drought in Belgium and the extremely high risk of fire along our line, only the Tubize 2069 HELENA steam locomotive will be able to run only in Spontin station. You will be able to see it all weekend in the station without having to wait for it to return from the line! We can understand your disappointment but our passion requires a rigorous safety, we put a real point of honor to ensure your safety in the trains and in the surroundings.
  3. OTHER TRAINS: all trains pulled by diesel locomotives are maintained!
  4. FIRE SCHOOL: the Fire School of the Province of Namur and the cadet officer of the Dinaphi rescue zone (district of Dinant – Philippeville) will be present to demonstrate their equipment in front of the Château de Spontin
  5. INFRABEL will exhibit its new “H2O” hot water weeding concept during the festival! This is an opportunity to see this ultramodern equipment up close!

Come and spend an unforgettable day at the Chemin de Fer du Bocq!

We wish you an excellent weekend on our beautiful railway line.


Free seats on the trains, your ticket is a package for the whole day!
