The regular freight train connecting Bully-Grenay in France and Tessenderlo in Belgium has been riding 1 hour later than usual, permanently it seems. Only a few days a year can it be photographed in what you could call daylight. Also so in my hometown De Pinte beginning of July. While going for a stroll I accidently crossed paths with this train.

B-Logistics was pushing a train in place at Euroports, while this Europorte locomotive was waiting for its next service. It has arrived here a few hours ago with a sugar train from France. Shutterspeed was not too long, considering the massive amount of available artificial light. Continue reading Europorte @ Euroports
