The railway station of Tournai, in Belgium, is situated on line 94. The first train arrived there on 24 January 1842. A first neo-classical stone building dating from the 1840s was later dismantled and replaced to serve as the railway station of the town of Leuze-en-Hainaut. The current station building was designed by Henri Beyaert and erected between 1874-1879. The monumental building originally included a glass and iron construction covering the platforms and rails, and a "gare des marchandises" located in a separate building conceived in the form of a late-medieval Flemish cloth-hall. The buildings were severely damaged during World War II. The structure covering the platforms and rails was demolished and replaced by simple awnings covering the platforms.
