    Not that this route is ever going to be build. Because there is little intrest in this i think :(
    here is some extra freight train that works on this line is the RTB Cargo coppertrain that is going to Umicore in Olen.

    A new train on the line. This train will drive 2 trains in the morning to brussel and in the evening 2 trains back to Mol.
    So they will be on this route from Mol to Lier.

    This route looks so nice, hope it as well, But I think if they ever decide to add some belgian routes that it wil be one of those I suggested, not because I posted them, but these are in fact the most popular and bussiest routes in Belgium. So Seems more logic to me

    Yes they are probably bussier and more logic. The reason for my suggestion is that i live in Geel and that there is a good variety of diesel and electric ;-)
