The old railway line

oude spoorwegbedding

It's wonderful when the baby can come along on a walk. A walk along the old railway line from Ronse to Edingen (line 87) is a convenient choice.

This railway line was used by labourers who worked in the Borinage coal mines. The line closed in 1965 and was replaced with a bus route. Nature reclaimed the site and the municipalities of Ellezelles, Flobecq and Ronse turned it into a recreational path.
