By BertTrainThe tram line Maastricht - Vaals is a lost steam tram line in the Limburg hills. The line connected Maastricht and Vaals between 1922/1925 and 1938 via Gulpen and Wijlre. The line had a length of 28 kilometers and was carried out in standard gauge.
The simulation assumes that the line has been operated for a longer period of time. In the 1990s, the “Stichting Museumlijn Maastricht – Vaals” (SMMV) was established. After approval from the provincial government, the dilapidated line was made accessible again and the foundation could start with tourist trips on this line. (similar to the ZLSM on the million-dollar line).
The simulation shows the situation around 2020.
