For many Western European countries, the real modern times by the railways began in ernest with the legendary NoHAB diesel locos of American design, that a Swedisch and a belgian builder were entitled to produce in license. Norway, Denmark, Luxemburg, Hungary and Belgium based the backbone of their post-1945 locomotive fleets upon this rugged design and it is a matter of fact, that still, after 55 years of use, their are some NoHABs still operating. Others have received a lease of life in a museum, like 202 020 with TSP/PTF. The loco is seen here at sain-Ghislain on 12 september 2004. Scanned photo by Leon Schrijvers
