Live Steam: arrival and test run NS 4014 at Stormpolderrail


A short vid (more to come soon) of the arrival and test run of a 7¼” model of the NS (Nederlandse Spoorwegen, Dutch Railways) 4014 at Stormpolder Model Railroad, Krimpen aan den IJssel, The Netherlands. The NS 4000 class were Swedish locos built by NOHAB and arrived together with the also NOHAB built 0-8-0 freight loco class NS 4700 after World War II, although already ordered during the war by the Dutch government in exile. The NS 4000 class was almost similar to the Swedish H3s class which had been constructed for the Bergslagernas Järnväg (Class A8 at SJ (Statens Järnvägar)). The NS 4700 class locos were almost similar to the Swedish M3b class which ran on the TGOJ-line. The model of NS 4014 is like the original equiped with 3 cylinders and the axles have roller bearings. For more footage of this test run please see the vid made by shantos001 here on YouTube
