Train World is a railway museum in Belgium and the official museum of the National Railway Company of Belgium. It is situated in the preserved buildings of Schaarbeek railway station and in a new shed built to its north. Although scheduled to open in 2014, its opening was delayed until September 2015. The Museum was solemnly opened by King Philippe. The museum is over 8,000 square metres and displays 22 locomotives. It also displays 1,200 other objects, including an original 19th century railway bridge. One of the most important objects in the museum is the "Pays de Waes" locomotive, dating to 1845, which is the oldest preserved locomotive in Continental Europe.
