The town of Eschweiler used to be a hotbed of coal mining and other industrial activity in times gone by, but almost nothing remains. What does remain, though, is the last set of manned crossing gates on this line, the operation of which is controlled by the operator in Ehf tower.

Here Crossrail 185 578 is seen with the Ewals intermodal train DGS 40162 (Novara/I - Genk/B) passing the tower and swinging around the curve leading up to Eschweiler Hbf train station.
