Werkplaats Diesel Tractie Antwerpen-Noord

THE ABANDONED STATION IN BELGIUM

These are the hangars of ‘Werkplaats Diesel Tractie’ in Antwerpen-Noord. The hangars are owned by the national train company NMBS in Belgium. It was a workshop that repaired diesel traction motors.

The huge halls were built in 1925 and were used for repairing diesel trains. Some years ago the train company sold the buildings and grounds to the city of Antwerpen.

They are reconverting the old yard into a park. Some of the buildings will have a new public function; the hangars were transformed into sporting facilities in 2009. My photos of the ‘Werkplaats Diesel Tractie Antwerpen Noord’ were taken in 2006.
