Historical background:
The Dutch Railways purchased these two-axle shunting diesel locomotives between 1934 and 1951 from Werkspoor and CW Zwolle. A total of 169 copies were built in various series and versions. Because of the distinctive sound of their exhaust, they were nicknamed "Sik" (singular of "Ziege" or "Goat") and are well known among railway employees and train enthusiasts alike.

Color and Use:
The locomotives were originally painted green, but were later repainted in the yellow-gray color scheme. These hard-working machines were in tireless use everywhere in the Netherlands. In the 1990s, many of them were taken out of service due to stricter occupational safety regulations. However, some of these locomotives have been preserved by museum railroads and private railroad companies or are still in use.

The Diesel locomotive 265 "Sik" is an impressive model that captures the history and charm of the Dutch railway world and is ideal for model railways and collections.
