Was taking a train from Brussels to Hasselt earlier today and on the platform was one of the SCNB's weed killer trains. The camera in the front is used to analyse whether there are any weeds on the track.

Wouldn't be able to tell you much more than that, it was truly a chance happening and unfortunately our train was moved at the last minute a couple platforms away so I couldn't take more photos.

It essentially had a couple wagons of the type you see in the picture, and then a few tankers that must have contained the weed killing agent.

A very strange train in any case!

I was hunting the web to try and find some more information about the train and ended up finding a website all dedicated to it, with, cherry on top, more pictures of the train!

Good stuff!

I remember you St. Laurentois were planning a trip to Belgium soon, do you guys have more details of your dates?

Ciao,

Oh dear - I have a nasty feeling coming on that I may be "persuaded" to assist in the creation of an HO replica. Mind you the camera rig could be interesting!

You're forgiven - I actually quite enjoy that sort of challenge.
