The information boards
Typical blue and white station nameboards inform passengers of the name of the station into which the train is entering. The platform signs help them find their way around the station. Warning signs indicate the dangers of level crossings and electric catenaries. Manufacturer’s plates were affixed by the manufacturer to identify rolling stock of his manufacture. The SNCB logo also served an identification function.

You will also find lots of lanterns. None of them are the same, and for good reason: each has its own particular function. Oil lamps, acetylene lamps, electric lamps, train and safety lights... they serve as a railway signal, warn the driver or highlight work on the tracks.
