Lined up to the south of Amsterdam are several Class 1800 1,500Kv DC locos.

Lined up to the south of Amsterdam are several Class 1800 1,500Kv DC locos.

The locos are mostly B-B electric locomotives built by Alsthom between 1980 and 1983 based on the SNCF Class BB 7200, and in use by the Dutch Railways since 1981.

Originally in the Class 1600 series several went to NS-Reizigers (1638–1658), had their numbers raised by 200, thus keeping their number but now in the 1800 series. In later years 10 more of the 1600 loco's where sold to NS-Reizigers and subsequently renumbered to the 1800 series. The 1800 series was now 1823, 1824 and 1826 to 1858. Retaining the last 2 digits of their number. Loco 1838 was involved in a heavy but non-fatal traincrash at Amsterdam Central Station in 2005 and due to the extensive damage later scrapped.

Locos visible are : ?, ?, 1847, 1853, 1857, 1851, 1854, 1844, ?. Other EMU units are NS Mat '64 and are the oldest units in service in Holland.
