Intercity detours – part 1

It would have been a very good reason – but the beautiful scenery was not the reason why SNCB detoured their Oostende – Eupen intercity trains through Voeren. End of October and beginning of November 2020, the direct railway line between Liège and Welkenraedt was closed for works. An opportunity for the passengers to discover some different than usual scenery. For rail enthousiasts, it was an opportunity to see loco-hauled passenger trains on a freight-only railway line.
I was happy to spend a full day along the tracks and got to make some nice pictures. All pictures are taken on November 7, 2020.
