More About this Item


Description: 1 May 1863 HAINAUT. BRUXELLES. Action Privilégiée de F500. yellow, black. #26000. No 24881. Repaired left border. Formed 1863 to acquire the two lines named, being parts of the direct line Brussels-Lille-Calais. The lines were worked by the state for the link to Calais for England. A dispute between the company and the State led to the international trains being routed via Courtrai, but the dispute was settled, and services resumed via Tournai. We read that the company believed that a Channel bridge or tunnel would have a very favourable effect on its business. Today the Eurostar trains between Brussels and London use this line. Decorative border, with vignette of a train. Signed as administrateur by Paul Oppenheim, member of an important business family. He was president of the C.d.F. Anvers-Gand, and administrateur of the Ciepour l'Eclairage et le Chauffage par le Gaz.
