Working full time and making photos of trains during daytime are most compatible during the summer months. I try to plan a couple of days that I can leave work a bit earlier than usual to hit the road. To maximize the time outside, I keep the distances limited. On July 2nd of 2015, I spent an evening along line 24. The evening started in Hoeselt, on the part of the line where cargo’s run in between the passenger trains. The latter were numerous, and I was happy to get this steel train connecting Châtelet with Genk-Zuid.
I had to duck low in order to hide from view the metal barrier separating the road from the railway tracks.
