Close to the action

Living in an apartment in Antwerp is great. Living in an apartment in Antwerp and close to one of the largest European railway ports is even better.
The port is a great placce to explore by bicycle. It can be done in relative safety, and it gives you the time to discover the hidden tracks and yards. Thus seeing things that you might look over driving a car. Like it was on the evening of August 6th, when I discovered a Captrain Belgium class 66 waiting at the LBC Tank Terminals in the Alaska section of the port. It looked ready to depart, so I set up my gear at the Oosterweelsteenweg railroad crossing. Only a few minutes later the train slowly pulled out of the siding, resulting in the shot below.
