Railways of Yesterday
Car PH 408
Produced from 1905 in Belgium by the “Ateliers de la Dyle La Louviere” then at Pétange, the PH cars were characteristic of the Luxembourg railway landscape for 60 years. Every luxury of the era was incorporated: spacious seats, large picture windows, steam heating, electric lighting, toilet. They were used by the CFL until 1967 and were used with all types of locomotives: steam, diesel, electric.
No car has been preserved intact, but, because of their use as cars for service, shops, offices, trips, etc., 5 cars and 2 coaches survived until after 1990. For TRAIN 1900, 4 cars and 1 coach were recovered and restored by the AMTF with the support of the Ministry of Tourism and private sponsors.
