Open house in Maldegem with steam locomotives May 2, 2015
The photo shows the start of a drive to Balgerhoeke between Maldegem and Eeklo

Steam train Maldegem-Eeklo (formerly known as the Steam Center Maldegem) is the center of a historic railway line on the former station site in Maldegem, Belgium.

The railway line with the line number 58 used to be operated by the NMBS and connected Ghent with Bruges. The rise of the car heralded the decline that lasted until 1959, when passenger traffic between Eeklo and Bruges was replaced by buses. The last passenger train left for Bruges on February 26, 1959, around 9:30 PM. Although the Maldegem - Bruges section was broken out in the early 1960s, freight trains continued to run between Eeklo and Maldegem until 26 April 1988.
