Strukton procured its first electric locomotive in May 2019. A locomotive from the former class 1600/1800 from the Dutch State Railways (NS). The original company number was the 1824. After a thorough overhaul and repainting, it was named “Nicole”. It is currently in regular use for the transportation of engines and infrastructure in support of work being carried out on Dutch tracks. Strukton’s objective is to equip the locomotives with batteries so that they can run independently on routes without catenaries. The planning for this conversion is currently underway.
