Lionel participated in the first exhibition organized by Borst & van Gelderen. The exhibition with the title 'The man who took the tram' was shown at HE.RO.
A quote from B&vG: 'From the first day we saw Lionel's work, we knew we will support this artist. We are also going to exhibit his art outside the walls of 'outsider' locations. Both the works with metro lines and the drawings on which is written only, we find beautiful.'

On the day the North-South line was opened, a work by Lionel which included the new North-South line was printed in the dutch newspaper Het Parool.
This new metro line in Amsterdam, which took 20 years to complete, has been occupying his mind for a long time: next to it being a great new adventure, it also meant loss: the close down of bus route 32. By way of saying goodbye Lionel took one more ride with bus 32, in the week before the opening of the North-South line, on July 21st 2018.
