History of the Class




NMBS 2555 enters Lage Zwaluwe station at the head of a freight train, July 7th 2004. It is expected that 25.5s will disappear from the scene after the introduction HSTs between Amsterdam and Brussels around 2007. The HSTs will replace the ICR-Benelux sets which have NMBS Class 11 haulage and which in their turn are most likely to replace the 25.5s on freight duties between Belgium and The Netherlands.
