The weekend of the 5th of April the L24 was shut down for trackwork and trains were diverted via the L39 and L37 Montzen - Welkenraedt - Aachen Süd - Aachen Hbf and return. Even though the class 225 diesels have not been around since December 2008, they are still the only class of engine save for the class 66 that was usable for the detours. Good thing Cobra spends millions on the Traxx lease...
Anway, here's a trio of 225s heading for Montzen to pick up the first train of the day. One 225 will lead towards Germany while the two others will shove on the rear. The area here shows evidence of the massive earthwork undertaken when the old flyover and connection to the L24a was removed the previous year.
225 029 with 225 027 and 225 028 in tow south of the Buschtunnel.
