The locomotive
The Amsterdam Dinner Train is powered by a 65 years old locomotive of the E 1200 series formerly operated by the Dutch railways. These locomotives were assembled in the Netherlands according to a US design with heavy sheets of steel. The Netherlands obtained these locomotives as part of the Marshall help program for the reconstruction works after World War II.
