Eastern Belgium - pointduvue
The way things were in Nouvelaar - two 55s bring an intermodal train westbound through the large cut between Nouvelaar and Rue d'Aix. The near slope was deforested less than a year previous. Nature was regaining lost ground fast, but shots of nice sweeping vistas like this were still possible until 2005. This shot was taken in 2009 just 300m further down the track, after Infrabel deforested the hillside again, in preparation for the electrification work.
