OK, I just checked the Brussels station map on-line and there is an Eddy Merckx stop at the end of the Erasmus-Stockel line way down SW of

town. It's also just down the line from the Jacques Brel station too.

I hope this helps folks who want to make a quest. best, Brandon"monkeyman"Ives Vancouver, B.C.

PS: Thanks for the heads up on the post, but I don't need any more for

the time being. If any listie wins it and needs it picked up and shipped just ask.
