In the real world, this engine can only be seen in the museum, but on your virtual railways you can let this engine come to life again: the engine series 1100 of the Dutch Railways. The 1100 series was built and put into service from the fifties of the twentieth century. Many engines of this well-known type could be seen in The Netherlands in the second half of the last century. The engine was active in a large number of train services from freight trains to express passenger trains. The engine was built after French design, with which the first version of the engine shared a number of features, such as the decoration lining on the sides of the engine.

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.
In the add on Dutch Classics 3 we present the virtual version of one of the most characteristic types of engines from the Dutch Railways in the second half of the twentieth century: the engine series 1200. This engine type was in service with the Dutch Railways between 1952 and 1998. From 1999 till 2009 the engine was in service for the freight company ACTS Nederland; since 2010 the engine has been in use at the EETC railway company.
