Border crossing in Plombieres (lign 24)
The Belgium-German border crossing in Plombieres is an unelectrified track without any passenger service. During weekdays over 100 trains cross the borderline. The lign is part of a very important fright service between the Antwerp Harbour and Germany. The lign is the connection between Montzen (one of the biggest shunting yards) and Aachen West. On the lign, the trains usely run on the right-hand site (German way). On the few kilometers in Belgium, the signals are modified to signal the right-hand track as the normal flow.
