Oldschool day out

Last weekend, works between Bruges and Ghent meant rerouting of rail traffic over scenic West-Flemisch rail lines, that otherwise don’t see that many freight and intercity traffic.
Add to that a sunny Saturday, and no car available. What you get is an oldschool day trip by bicycle. Packed with photogear, tripod, lunch and water; led by the circumstances to get the most out of the day.
Modern touch: whatsapp to stay in touch with friends further down the line.
For some reason most of the freight trains passed late in the afternoon, when the light was the softest. A friendly wave from the train driver, a friend of mine, made it a perfect moment when this train to Zeebruges passed quiet Wontergem.
