As of the 16th April, the HLE 20 electric locomotives will no longer haul passenger services for SNCB Mobility, they will be replaced by HLE 13 electric locomotives made surplus from SNCB Logistics - which in turn were cascaded by the introduction of the new HLE 18.

End of Series 20 locomotives in passenger service.

As of April 16, the passenger turnover of 20 locomotives of the series will disappear. They will be replaced by locomotives of the series 13. Following the optimization of its locomotive fleet, SNCB Logistics will not need the last 15 13 that the SNCB should give him after the commissioning of the new 18.

Here moon list (not exhaustive) of the trains still with 20 on lines 161 and 162:

EC 90/91
EC 96/97
IC 2106, 2133, 2114, 2141
P 7600/8602
P 7602/8600
