1602 photographed at Kinkempois on May 18th, 2008. In 1966, eight locomotives of this series were taken in service by the SNCB, to ensure the international market. In the seventies, 1601 and 1602 were provided with a fourth smaller pantograph, so that they could run to Switzerland with the train "Freccia del Sole", which related Brussels to Spiez from 1974 to 1978.
Gone! Over are the times of both Class 16 and the Overnight Express to Warszawa. Under a dark sky, SNCB 1605 brings in the JAN KIEPUURA overnight express into Bruxelles-Midi on 17 September 2004. Leonardus Schrijvers
With Int.424 to Oostende via Aachen, Liége and Brussels, SNCB 1606 just came off the Hohenzollern Brigde to enter Köln Hbf on 13 April 2000. For three decades, these eight machines hauled exresses between Oostende and Köln untill the demise of these trains in 2002. Leonardus Schrijvers
SNCB 1604 stands in Aachen Hbf on 10 September 1999. Eight of these three nsystem locos (3 kV DC for Belgium, 15 kV 16,7 Hz AC for Germany and 25 kV, 50Hz AC for France) were build in 1966. These machines were to be found hauling international crack express passenger services between Köln, Aachen, Liége, Brussels and Oostende, but also a hop to Paris Nord or Luxembourg was possible. Sadly, tehse machines became extinct in 2010. Leonardus Schrijvers
