Short train under a huge dome (1)

Antwerp’s Central Station still appears on lists as one of the world’s most beautiful stations. I’ve been using this station on a daily basis, but it has been a long time since I’ve made some photo’s there. The electrification of the line between Antwerp and Mol was a good reason: some diesel hauled services would be replaced by electric trains. So my plan was to shoot some diesel trains under the magnificent metal-and-glass dome. Today these units can still be seen here, but SNCB mostly couples them together for more capacity. Trains with one single railcar don’t come here anymore, I think.
