Translated Description from PIKO: New for 2021: The diesel-electric, four-axle bogie locomotives of the 2200 series of the Dutch State Railways NS shaped the era of traction change from steam to diesel locomotives in their procurement years from 1955 to 1958. 280 copies were put into service with the 2400 series. With their one-sided end drivers and the long stems, the machines embodied an American design. The Nazi machines, however, were manufactured exclusively by Western European companies. The 100 km / h locomotives could not only be used in freight train and shunting services, but were also often used in front of passenger trains. Before heavy ore trains, up to four locomotives were sometimes used in multiple traction by the 900 hp machines.
