B-Logistics have won back the limestone traffic between Hermalle s/Huy and Oberhausen from DBS-NL. This time around the trains are being taken via the L.24 by ATB/PZB-equipped class 77s. As far as I'm aware this is the first scheduled traffic for them on the KBS485 in Germany, and is a more than welcome relief from the monotony of electric traction.
Without reliable schedule info a friend and I set up at different points of the line, and for a change everything worked to plan. In this view at Kohlscheid the MaKs are right on the money lifting the empty rake up the incline from Herzogenrath.
