Blistering Barnacles!

Right as you enter into the Gare du Midi (train station) in Brussels, you will see an enormous mural of Tintin, holding on to a train.  For dear life.

Tintin, Europe's favorite little journalist, has a very special relationship with the Belgian railways, as did his creator, Hergé.

In honor of this long-standing relationship, and to celebrate the 175 years of Belgian railways, the Hergé Museum is organizing an exhibition of trains and Tintin. 

Ever since Tintin was first published on 10 January 1929, trains have had a very special role in many of his journeys. 

and if you happen to be a 9 year old boy, you might find yourself in paralyzing awe with finding a museum full of trains and Tintin.
