Extractions: Once upon a time, there was a railway line number 150, which linked Tamines with Jemelle via Dinant (Belgium). It was one of the many railways in the Sambre-Meuse region of the belgian Ardennes. Recently, the part Ermeton-sur-Biert/Anhee (operational between 1890 and 1960), has become alive again. From 1 July 1995 (hopefully), it will now possible to reach Warnant, another 4 km beyond Denee-Maredsous in the direction of Yvoir. There you'll find a former rail yard, with a connection to a former 1 metre gauge track! The completely preserved station is now used to breed snails. At the other side of the tracks, you'll find a restaurant where you can taste these delicious little creatures, prepared according to the best belgian gastronomical traditions. The line to Warnant offers some fantastic panoramic views to the railbikers. You'll pass along the fabulous ruins of Montaigle, cross several bridges, and even drive through two tunnels. There are 25 railbikes for rent. It's advisable to book ahead, because the demand tends to be big, especially on weekends and holidays. Unfortunately it is impossible to reach Warnant or Falaen by train. The closest SNCB station is Yvoir, on the main InterCity line Blankenberge-Bruges-Ghent-Brussels-Namur-Dinant (hourly services). From Yvoir you can walk (very nice in the summer and in the automn) along the abandonned railway line to Falaen. If you come out of the station of Yvoir, turn to the left, follow the Meuse until you reach the bridge and cross it (careful, the traffic is very dangerous). Take the road left, and immediately right (downhill, direction "Maredsous"). After a short time, you'll be at a level crossing of a clearly abandonned line. Follow that track to the right. After 2 km or so, you'll be at Warnant, which will be a starting point after 1 July (hopefully). Until then, continue 4 km further until Falaen, where you can start your bike trip. From Yvoir to Falaen, I walked for exactly 2 hours! It's beautiful, but tiring trip along the tracks.

In 1908 Sears and Roebuck offered a railbike attachment in its catalog designed to adapt the common bicycle for railbike use. In the late 1800's several railbike models were available commercially and were used by the general public as well as by telegraph and railroad company employees.
