Monuments

In the country of Luxemburg there is a lot of historical rolling stock which is placed as monument somewhere along the street. Below some examples (but there may be more):

 
monument loc

Belval Soleuvre (e-loc + wagons of mine train)

Below the railway line in Belval Soleuvre, there is, besides a busy trafic road, an electrical loc and several lorries of the 700-mm mine railways. In the mines they mostly used electrical locomotives, because diesel engines produced too many exhaust gasses.
