The two-part Dutch electric multiple unit Plan V - better known in the Netherlands as the Mat '64 or by its nickname, Apekop (monkey head) - became one of the standard regional transport trains in the Dutch State Railways from the middle of the 1960s onwards. With a total of 246 models, it was the most commonly built multiple unit in the NS at the time.
The Plan V1 and V2 were delivered in green livery with sand-yellow trim strips. The Plan V of the third series had already been painted yellow at the factory in 1968. The multiple units delivered earlier were then also repainted between 1969 and 1973. Until they were taken out of service, these multiple units were used on virtually all electrified railway lines in the Netherlands.
