10 august 2011 - Płowdiw (Bułgaria), bulwar Cara Borysa III. Pogoda się zepsuła, taryfa zastawiła przystanek, ogólnie wszystko do bani. W takich oto straszliwych okolicznościach przyszło spędzać starość wynalazkom z belgijskiej Gandawy.

Van Hool AG280T #01

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – depot/zajezdnia Gentbrugge. Trolleybuses 01, 03, 05 and 06 lined up in the tram depot yard. They won’t run again unless someone buys them for further service in another country. This vehicle type might now be extinct, too, as I think these were the only ones ever built. All very sad.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – Dampoort. Only one of the platforms of the bus station at Dampoort was wired for trolleybus operation, and here the driver replaces his poles for the last time. The watching girl will never see this again! The guides on the wires here make this a simple operation – much simpler than on plain lines. Note the trolley retrievers to hold the ropes down – we never had these in UK.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – PTT Mariakerke. The northern terminus of the Gent trolleybus line involved an awkward turn into a busy main road, but this didn’t seem to cause great problems. Bus 11 has just turned to return to the city. There was only ever one trolleybus line, numbered Line 3 – Lines 1 and 2 have always been trams. There is a plan to return Line 3 to tramway operation, but this must be a long way off.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – Meersemdries. At the southern terminus of the only trolleybus line, in a quiet side road. Line 3 was mostly a back-street operation and the trolleybuses only reached the centre of the city quite briefly, as if they were apologising for being there. I think de Lijn weren’t very keen to have them, either - for long periods, the trolleybus line was operated only by diesel buses, and the few trolleybuses that ran used their auxiliary diesel engines with the poles down. Now, of course, it’s only diesel buses – hardly a good advertisement for clean, sustainable electric power.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – zajezdnia/depot Gentbrugge. A Gent trolleybus leaves the depot for one of its final trips. Since 14 June there are no trolleybuses in Gent, and none in Belgium, either.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – Tweekapellen Straat. A quiet street on the edge of the city. Now it will be much noisier, of course, as diesel buses have taken over Line 3.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) - Gent (BE) – Sint-Michielshelling. Crossing the city centre for almost the last time. A few other Belgian cities had trolleybuses, but Gent has been the last system for many years. At the end, this was one of only three Gent trolleybuses that could be operated.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – DC Mariakerke. The northern terminus of the single trolleybus line. Today it is just a bus and the wires will come down. In fact, no regular trolleybus service has operated since December – now it is completely finished.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – Sint-Michielshelling. The centre of Gent has very nice buildings, but often too many people! I managed to take this photo, though. The trolleybuses have diesel engines for operating away from the wires (very slow and noisy) and would probably be OK for a few more years, but de Lijn has decided to replace them with normal buses, and maybe one day with another tram line – the trolleybus route was once a tram line, which the trolleys replaced.

12 june 2009 - Gent (BE) – Gentbrugge Meersemdries. Dzien dobry! I made a little European trip, so was quiet for a while. Now, I hope to bring you new photos. The trolleybus system in Gent closed down this weekend, and this is one of the final trips on the line. Now, all trolleybuses are gone in Belgium. Here is the terminus at one end of the 8km line, which opened in 1985.

16 august 2008 - Gent, Dendermontsesteenweg. Wymierający gatunek, mimo, że trzyma się nawet-nawet. De Lijn już jest w trakcie zamiany linii na tabor AG300 CNG i około połowy brygad w tej chwili to dieslowskie AG300. Z jednej strony szkoda, z drugiej strony – jaki sens ekonomiczny ma JEDNA linia trolejbusowa?

9 june 2001 - Gandawa, Korenmarkt. Jedyna belgijska linia trolejbusowa nosi numer 3. Uruchomiono ją stosunkowo niedawno, bo w 1989 roku - 25 lat po likwidacji ostatnich trolejbusów w Brukseli i Antwerpii.

9 june 2001 - Gent, Cataloniestraat. Dodatkową atrakcją Gandawy jest jedyna w Belgii linia trolejbusowa.

23 october 2005 - Gent, Emile Braunplein. This is the only operable trolleybus system in Belgium, it was closed between 9. april 2004 and 17. october 2005 - this picture was taken a few days after the reopening. But as far as I know De Lijn want to close the line again, and replace the trolleys with hybrid buses.
