Eastern Belgium - pointduvue
5505 brings the limestone train CS 48567 (Hermalle - Oberhausen/D) out of the Gulp Tunnel in Hindel west of Montzen yard. Routinely booked for a single class 55 unit this heavy train was the undisputed "audio king". The unit was in Run 8 all the way from Hermalle to the tunnel at Gemmenich, where the steep decent into Aachen begins. The Hindel interlocking received a sorely-needed overhaul in 2010 during which the picturesque little switchmans' shanty was removed.
