I took 08:39 Eurostar to Brussels from Waterloo and then at Brussels, I took the 13:10 Intercity (Ostend) to Bruge (Loco-Hauled :happy3: )
At Brugge I saw the Thalys Train, and that is the 1 train that goes to Ostend
On the way back, I took 11:31 Intercity back to Brussels (EMU), and I saw the ICE3 train, and TGV leaving Brussels Zuid
then I took the 14:56 L'Eurostar to Waterloo, at Nine Elms Flyover, we passed DVC 373 at 16:19
373208 "Micheal Hollard" stands at Waterloo International, it looks like that the train needs an urgent trip to the Carriage Washer

Locomotive 1344 pushes an Intercity Train out of Bruxelles Zuid (that is the train I took to Brugge)

Unit 412 is one of the many Units that operate the Suburban System around Brussels

This Unit is approaching Brugge having completed the Gent St.Petiers to Brugge Shuttle

A long line of Electric Locomotives Stabled outside Brugge Station, I seen these locos operating the Touristic Intercity Train/ Double Decker Train/ and Freight Services

The Driving Trailer of the Intercity Set stops at Brugge to work a fast service to the South calling at Gent St.Petiers,Bruxelles Zuid,Bruxelles Central ,etc (Apologies for Gigantic Photo)

Ha Ha, what do you expect? The Belgians are hardly noted for their sense of style.

Good pics BTW.
