Waterloo is a local railway station along the line Charleroi-Sud - Nivelles - Brussels.
The station of Waterloo was inaugurated on 1 February 1874 at the same time than the startup of the connection Waterloo to Brussels.
This station is of the original style (1874) and is planned to be moved (rebuilt??) a few meters north during the RER "Réseau Régional Express" construction: the railway line between Nivelles - Waterloo - Linkebeek (south of Brussels) is currently being enlarged to allow a higher frequency of local and intercity trains.
Some peak hour trains make a first stop at Waterloo directly from Brussels.
