The bronze statue recalls the time when the steam tram ran. From 1882 there was a connection between Ede and Wageningen with a stop in Bennekom. The tram was pulled by the locomotive "Bello". In the 1930s, the steam tram disappeared and a bus service took its place.
In 1993 this statue was placed near the place where the tram stop used to be. It is a gift from the Rotary Club Bennekom.
