CFC/NMBS/CFV3V 5538 stands on 23 September 2023 in Treignes. The railways of Congo (Chemins de Fer du Congo) tried to buy three ex-SNCB Class 55s, but the deal fell through due to another civil war in that African country. The NMBS/SNCB was and is phasing out Class 55 rapidly and the 5538, which was to be opne of the Congolese locos, ended with the CFV3V that uses the loco on Diesel days and for some shunting duties. Since there are plans to give the loco a repaint back to original colours, anyone willing to photograph a quasi-Congolese Diesel in the Belgian Ardennes is advised not to wait for too long Leonardus Schrijvers
A little joke on the part of CFV3V, seen on 22 September 2023 at Mariembourg: Class 90 never had the latest NMBS/SNCB colours in grey with yellow and blue accents; neither did Class 91, but that ios no reason at all for CFV3V not to put 9011 in the latest national colours. Leonardus Schrijvers
Ftormer SNCB 9008 stands in the shed of the CFV 3V at Mariembourg on 22 September 2023. Class 90 is the firsat version of Class 91: in the 1970s SNCB decided to rebuild Class 90s into Class 91 shunters. Leonardus Schrijvers
