Benelux-Hondekoppen - Rotterdam CS

Gedurende de laatste dagen dat de Benelux-Hondekoppen actief waren in de Intercitydienst Amsterdam-Brussel v.v., rijden drie onbekende exemplaren het Centraal Station van Rotterdam binnen. De trein is afkomstig uit Brussel en zal na de stop de reis voortzetten naar Amsterdam.

Van de 12 treinstellen (8 van NS en 4 van de NMBS) is één exemplaar, de NMBS 220.902, bewaard gebleven en is thans in het bezit van de Stichting Hondekop.

During the last days the Benelux-Hondekop trainsets were in service between Amsterdam and Brussels, three unknown sets arrive at Rotterdam Central Station. The train came from Brussels and will continue its journey to Amsterdam after the stop.

From the 12 trainsets (8 owned by NS, 4 owned by NMBS/SNCB) only one, the NMBS 220.902, has been preserved and is currently owned by the Stichting Hondekop.

 

The nickname of these kind of trainsets was "Hondekop", which means "dog head" or "dog face" in English, due to the shape of the front.

 

Rotterdam CS, 9-5-1987.
