In this add on you find the 1300 engine series of the Dutch Railways. The 1300 could be seen as the big brother of the 1100 engine from Dutch Classics 5; both engine series were based on a similar French design, but the 1300 is much larger. The 1300 was not the most extensive engine series, but it was the most powerful electric engine of the Dutch Railways in its time. From the start of the fifties of the last century until the end of the twentieth century the engine could be seen in front of heavy passenger trains and heavy freight trains in domestic traffic and also as far as the German railway stations of Bad Bentheim and Emmerich where the Dutch overhead wire voltage was used. After retreat from active service the engine could be seen in front of museum trains and sporadically in other roles on the Dutch railway network.

The 1300 for Train Simulator has been rebuilt on the basis of many pictures and drawings, both the outside and inside have been modelled in high detail. The development of this engine add on for Train Simulator was based on many hours of research.
