HermeLijn Articulated Cars

HermeLijn (Ermine) is the nickname of a number of series of low-floor trams of the Flemish transport company De Lijn , serving on the tram networks of Antwerp , Ghent and (especially in summer) on the Flemish coast tram line

Deliveries of HermeLijn trams began in1999 introducing low-floor vehicles to Antwerp. There are four series of HermaLijn: 1, 2A, 2B and 3. The first series of 31 trams (7201-7231) came into service in 1999-2000. They included fourteen trams for Ghent. The second series 2B was for Brussels 2000 .  They are 29.60 meters long and 2.30 meters 10 centimetres wider than the PCCs. All HermeLijnes have an automatic notification of the next stop and the destination.

In 2004 another series of 30 trams (7232-7261) were deployed, followed much later by ten additional trams (7262-7271). The last six of these had a cab which took up the entire width of the tram. One of these trams was permanently resident on the coastal tram . In summer, usually five additional trams temporarily transfer to the coast to reinforce the summer services.

In November 2009 the last option of the contract was taken up and a third series of 13 trams (7272-7284) were ordered. This series has reverted to a cab that covers only a portion of the front of the tram. The most striking difference from the previous series is the presence of LED screens instead of films line to indicate the line and destination. The trams were delivered in2012.

The HermeLijn trams are mainly used on lines 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 10 and 15. On lines 3, 5 and 15, the latest HermeLijn sets are used, equipped with extra facilities for wheelchair users.
