Product Description

Diesel locomotive Sik NS

Diesel locomotive series 200/300 Sik of the Dutch State Railways in yellow/grey livery. Epoch IV. Completely new design ! AC model with digital decoder and digitally switchable sound and light functions as well as buffer capacitor for uninterruptible power supply.

  • The model with newly developed digital shunting coupling is now available for the first time. More play fun guaranteed !
  • Rich detailing on the model with many plug-in parts and freestanding handles
  • Model with true to original light and sound functions Between 1934 and 1951 the Dutch State Railways bought the 2-axle diesel shunting locomotives from the manufacturer Werkspoor.

One series of the locomotives was also delivered by CW Zwolle. A total of 169 locomotives were built, but in various series and slightly different designs. The locomotives were known for their striking exhaust noise and as a result railway workers and railway fans called them "Sikken" or "Sik" what means "Goat" in English. Fifteen of these locomotives had mobile cranes when they were delivered.

After the original green livery the locomotives were painted with yellow-grey colours. The diligent working horses made unremitting efforts when operating throughout the Netherlands. In the second half of the 1990s, stricter safety regulations led to the decommission of the remaining locomotives. Many of them are preserved or still in operation at museum railways and some private railway companies.
