Dillingen Ore

Pairs of 189s are the usual power on the Maasvlakte - Dillingen iron ore trains. 189.024 and 189.033 worked one such train up the grade from Neef towards Bullay on 7 July 2011.

The yellow panel at buffer height on the second loco indicates it is fitted with auto-couplers, as are the 12-wheel hoppers that form the train.
