The SNCB Class 28 number series has been brought back into use for 43 Bombardier TRAXX locomotives which have been hired from Angel Trains Cargo for use with B-Cargo, the freight division of NMBS/SNCB. They are numbered in two series - they carry their original numbers, E186 123 to E186 125, and E186 196 to E186 220, and have also been numbered into the SNCB number series, 2801 to 2843.
It was planned that they would work passenger services between Brecht and Antwerp, but so far, this has been done by SNCB Class 13 locs. Therefore, their primary use remains the heavy freight corridor between Aachen-West, Antwerp, and Zeebrugge.
