These trains heading to Bruxelles are often joined to another train, which will be travelling no further than Lille.
If you can only see a train heading to Lille on the departure screens at the station, it's highly likely that the information will also apply to these trains.
Head to the indicated voie (platform/track) and then when you have reached it, other indicators will show you in which zones/repéres, the part of the train heading to Bruxelles will be located.
If the train you are will be travelling by is calling at Lille; the trains with a journey time of more than 3hr 40mins call there; then the train will reverse direction on departure from Lille.
