This is a scan of an old photo I took back in 1999 with my Olympus OM-1. This is an old NMBS/SNBC Class 25 locomotive pulling a passenger train along a branch line just outside Herentals in Belgium. Considering these old locomotives were introduced in 1960 it’s amazing that there are a few still in service today. Here we see the train running on the small remaining part of Line 29. It used to run all the way from Aarschot up to Tilburg in Holland. Now all that remains in use is the short stretch from Herentals up to Turnhout.
