Additional Product description

The Dutch State Railways received 58 four-axle electric locomotives of the 1600 series, based on the French electric locomotive BB 7200. In the year 1981, when they were introduced, they were the strongest NS train in the fleet. The engines for the Netherlands direct-current network with 1.5 kV were designed for a top speed of up to 180 km/h; the permitted top speed in daily service was 140 km/h. They had an output of 4,540 kW on the rails. All the locomotives were decorated with the coats of arms of cities within the Netherlands. As a modernised version of the 1600 series, 81 engines of the 1700 series were procured from 1991 to 1994. They distinguish themselves through the increased deployment of electronic components, as well as the updated train control system and a different braking system.

When the Netherlands freight transport merged with the German Railion Group, the DB AG received access to some of the NS 1600 series electric locomotives. However, these locomotives retained their old numbers, and the engines remaining with the NS were changed to the 1800 series whilst retaining the locomotive number. The NS also had a true world record holder in its fleet; the 1607: In the year 1989, this locomotive hauled a train made up of approximately 60 passenger coaches, thus transporting the longest passenger train in the world. Today, several locomotives are operated by private railway companies. The 1632 locomotive is used by the HSL, painted in a conspicuous chessboard design. Locon also operates a 9908 locomotive from the former NS fleet. Both locomotives are mainly deployed in freight transport or set before special trains.
