Save for the shuttles between Hermalle s/Huy and Bressoux the Dutch DB Schenker arm has taken over the former Railtraxx-hauled trains. Their underutilized fleet of 6400/6500-series MaK diesel-electrics are the usual power for these flows.
While usually used in pairs, on this fine day 6508 single-handedly rushed her string of empty cylindrical hoppers through Cheratte-Bas and on to Bressoux. The yard there has become the operating hub for limestone trains while Kinkempois is still being rebuilt and downsized.
