The SNCB class 13 is a type of mixed use, 200 km/h, multi-voltage electric locomotive of Tractis type, designed by Alstom in the late 1990s for the Belgian and Luxembourgish railways. Initial introduction revealed a number of problems related to electromagnetic interference with signalling and track circuits. By June 2000, the Class 13 locomotives were able to operate in push-pull mode with I11 type coaches, beginning operation on the InterCity G (Ostend-Antwerp) service. Since June 2001, they are also operating InterCity A services, sleeper services (TAA) between Brussels and Luxembourg, as well as freight trains between Liege and Luxembourg.
