NS Sprinter Nieuwe Generatie (SNG)

Sprinter Nieuwe Generatie (SNG). Has blue ceiling lights that look really bad on pictures. I have never seen one in real life, so as far as I’m concerned these trains don’t actually exist. In service 2018–present.

NS Verlengd Interregiomaterieel modern (VIRMm)

Verlengd Interregiomaterieel modern (VIRMm); a refit version of the VIRM. It’s like a train version of the A380, with leg room. In service 2017–present.

NS/NMBS V250 (Fyra)

V250. Also known as “Albratros”, “Fyra”, and “very expensive failure”. Capable of reaching speeds of 250 km/h. Technically a high-speed train, but in practice often limited to top speeds of up to 0 km/h. In service 2012–2013.

NS Dubbeldekker Zonering (DDZ)

Dubbeldekker Zonering (DDZ). Refit version of the DD-AR. Looks like an old person with copious amounts of botox and cosmetics. Also reminds you a bit of IKEA. In service 2012–present.

NS Verlengd Interregiomaterieel (VIRM)

Verlengd Interregiomaterieel (VIRM); technically a longer version of the dubbeldeksinterregiomaterieel (DD-IRM). Sounds like a crying whale when it departs. Originally known as “Regiorunner”. Some units were called “Doedelzak” due to the obnoxious sound of their engines. In service 1994–present.

NS Dubbeldeksmaterieel (DDM)

Dubbeldeksmaterieel (DDM). First double-decker train in the Netherlands. Visually similar to the later Dubbeldeksaggloregiomaterieel (DD-AR). Both are ugly as hell, but they get the job done. In service 1985–2019.

NS Class 1700
