Well, at least this is a somewhat new angle, taken from a freshly deforested hill. Which upon closer inspection turns out to be an 1860s-vintage tailings pile left over from the construction of the Gemmenich Tunnel, just to the south of the portal.

The train is one of the Antwerp-Basel/CH runthrough oil tankers. B-Cargo is experimenting with 40 cars doubleheaded, but for the time being most of these trains run with just 20 cars and a single engine. Judging from the blower noise it is enough of a load for a single Traxx.
2824 leads the 47067 (Petrol - Basel SBB/CH) towards Gemmenich.
