They can be found inside the “Station Racour“, built in 1907 along the 147 Landen-Tamines railway line in Belgium. The two rail coaches come from the M2 train, in service from 1958 up until the end of the 1990’s, and today assigned as holiday homes. The exterior has been sanded down and re-painted in the yellow and green colours of the Belgium Railway, and they have kept their original door and entrance features while the whole of the inside has been completely dismantled, treated and completed with new internal walling, porcelain stoneware floors and fitted out with a heat pump that ensures constant heating or cooling depending on the season.
The fully equipped kitchen with induction hob, combi oven and dishwasher can be found in the living area. The two original benches, complete with fully restored overhead luggage racks, are used in one part as dining seating, and the other as living room armchairs. The engine drivers’ old quarters, found at the front of the carriage, have been transformed into a bedroom for four people, with two single beds, bunk beds and a small bathroom with washbasin and shower cubicle. The second bedroom, a double room, is situated at the back of the carriage.
The Racour Station can be found on the RAVeL circuit (Réseau Autonome de Voies Lentes), independent network routes dedicated to slow traffic (Pedestrian route) that puts into use the canal towpaths and disused railway lines.
