A quick after-work-foam took me to Bunde in the Netherlands. This is a small village just north of Maastricht on the line through Sittard towards Roermond and the north of Holland. The line is an extension of the Belgian Meuse Valley line, the L40.
Being in the tri-country area, here's a truly international train. It carries limestone from a quarry in Yves-Gomezee near Charleroi, Belgium to the blast furnaces in Millingen, Germany. The cars are German, power is Belgian, and this photo was taken in the Netherlands.
This is not a bad train by European standards, 30 cars or around 2400 tons. The 77s sound great with a decent load. Being a northbound, light is best in mid-summer.
B-Cargo 7774 and 7773 haul the loaded limestone train 48555 (Yves-Gomezee - Millingen) through Bunde.
