- novelty 2020 -
The diesel-electric, four-axle bogie locomotives of the 2200 series of the Dutch State Railways (NS) in their years of procurement from 1955 to 1958 marked the time when the traction changed from steam to diesel locomotives. Together with the 2400 series, 280 units were put into service. With their one-sided final driver's cabs and long stems, the machines embodied an American design. However, the NS machines were manufactured exclusively by Western European companies. The 100 km / h locomotives could not only be used in the freight train and shunting service, but were also often used in front of passenger trains. Before heavy ore trains, up to four locomotives were used in multiple traction from the 900 hp machines. A PIKO SmartDecoder 4.1 with mfx capability is installed ex works, the locomotive is also prepared for simple retrofitting with sound and the largest possible loudspeaker.
