About fences

Railway lines usually follow a smooth profile, and their route is therefore very suitable for different forms of soft transport. Line 59 between Gent and Antwerp is no exceptions: a bicycle highway is being constructed on large portions of the line. Extremely useful for sporty commuters.
Add to that the inexplicable urge to place fences all over the place -> the bicycle highways are a challenge for rail photographers (the Flemish seem to adore fences, even on their private property. Useful in some cases, but just ugly and highly unnecessary in my modest opinion).
In Beervelde it was still possible to picture trains in 2017. Here we see a mixed train from DB Cargo on its way from the port of Ghent to the Netherlands.
