The network of the NMVB was in the beginning divided into "captiaal", financially autonomic parts of the network. For each capitaal there was a company which did the exploitation of the captiaal. Mostly a capitaal was synonimus with one or two lines. More than once a company did the exploitation for more than one capitaal, see for that the page about the companies.
On this page you find more information about lines of the NMVB. Dates of opening and closure, and the location of the lines. Select a province of Belgium to search for the specific lines.
