First Commercial Freights Hauled By A Vectron In Belgium

posted on 24th Sep 2020 17:24

24 September 2020 became a historic day for the Belgian rail network, when following a lot of test runs, a subsequent authorisation and various runs for driver training, a DB Cargo Belgium (DBCBE) Vectron hauled the first commercial trains in Belgium. On that day the locomotive 193 341 ran light to Montzen, took an empty autorack train to Aachen-West and came back with the empty Exxon train to Antwerp-North. From there the train was hauled by a DBCBE diesel locomotive to the port division of Petrol to be filled.
