History

The Dutch Railways (Nederlandse Spoorwegen or NS in short) Class 1600 electric locomotives were built by Alsthom between 1980 and 1983 based on the SNCF Class BB 7200, and in use by the Dutch Railways since 1981. The locomotives are used for both heavy freight and passenger trains. Thanks to the electric power control, the locomotives were not only the most economical but also the most powerful locomotives that Dutch Railways had.
In 1989 engine 1607 of the NS 1600 class set a world record pulling the longest passenger train ever with a length of 1.6 km equal to 60 passenger carriages. All the 1600/1700/1800’s carry names & crest of different Dutch towns and cities. The building set includes stickers with the names and crest 6 cities.
