Here we see a very close-up view of NMBS/SNCB Class 27 electric locomotive number 2725 passing through Duffel with an inter-city service from Antwerp to Brussels.

I got this shot from the foot path on the railway bridge across the river Nete in Duffel. This public footpath gets you amazingly close to the trains without the need to trespass or anything like that.

This shot was given a little more ‘pop’ using Topaz Adjust 4 and Aperture’s Dodge & Burn plugin.

Is 1/64 scale, like Hot Wheels & Matchbox, close to the HO model train scale?
