For what ever reason, this it the first NMBS/SNCB Class 12 electric loco I’ve ever managed to photograph. I think they’re just not common along lines 25/27.

Here we see Class 12 loco number 1209 rounding the corner on the approach to the Nete bridge in Duffel. The train is making it’s way towards Antwerp on line 27, it was probably on it’s way to the harbor. You can’t see it here, but this is actually a double-headed train. I didn’t get a good look at the second loco but it looked similar to a NMBS/SNCB Class 13, but not on NMBS/SNCB livery, so it either belonged to a company from another country, or from one of the open access operators in Belgium itself.
