This M4A3E2 used to be beside the N17 road at Hermeton-sur-Meuse (near Dinant and the French border). At that time its hatches were open and it could be entered; its interior appeared to be in good condition. Since then it has been recovered to the museum, restored and repainted. It is missing the usual 'duckbill' extended end connectors on its tracks.
