Hello guys, a new month is arrived with a new locomotive of the European tour ...time of a ride in Holland... ...with the NS 6500! The NS Class 6400 is a type of 4 axle diesel-electric freight locomotive. 120 (numbered 6401-6520) were built by MAK and ABB between 1988 and 1994 for Nederlandse Spoorwegen. I wanted to replicate the locomotive numbered 6500 with the yellow/gray colors because is the livery a love the most! The locomotive now keeps company to the younger sister NS 345 I've wrapped the windscreens with yellow stickers because the pieces do not exist, creating a punched adhesive to apply, and I'm quite satisfied with the final result As usual the locomotive is equipped with lights and switches I'm planning to use these two Dutch locomotives for the coils and torpedo wagons waiting to build a yard for steel production (one day...) Now enjoy the pictures ...and see you next month in another European country! ...to be continued...
Hello there, This is a Dutch/Swiss TEE diesel-electric trainset built in 1957 for Trans Europ Express service. Five of these sets were built, two were ordered by the SBB and three by NS. The train is 8 studs wide and powered by two train motors situated under the coach behind the power car. The power car itself houses the battery box and receiver. The power car. The couplings between the coaches. I haven't tested the bogies in real life but I'm pretty sure that it can drive on R40 curves. The cab car. Here you can see the interior of the train. A problem I had while building the coaches is the placement of the doors because they don't line up on both sides. The coach with closed compartments. The kitchen. And the cabine. The train operated as a push-pull set. In 1974 the trains were removed from service and stored at Utrecht until they were bought by the Ontario Northland Railway and used for service there. The trains were painted in a livery consisting of blue and yellow.
