HAINAUT. BRUXELLES. Action de F500. blue. #11000. No 4887. Folds. Formed in 1853 to link the mines of the Central Basin to the River Sambre. Among the founders were the Prince de Chimay, Joseph Ricquet de Caraman and Count Ludovic de Robiano. Count de Robiano has signed this share. It was originally intended that the line should run from Manage to Erquelinnes, but Ecaussines replaced Manage as terminal. 11.000 shares of F500 were issued, and two bond issues were made. 1857 brought an important agreement with the State, by which the company built a branch from Baume, on the company's main line, via Morlanwelz and Piéton to Fontaine l'Eveque and Marchienne-au-Pont. The Central Basin and Charleroi were thus linked to a number of the most important mines, such as those at Monceau-Fontaine and Monceau-sur-Sambre. The lines were very profitable in the 1860s.
