Yellow and blackRemarkable: Unit no. 6001 does not have a complete NS livery. The ICNGs will be all painted black – most yellow and blue will be applied later, using vinyls. Curious is therefore that the set already got 1st/2nd class markings.
The EMU you see in these pictures does not have seats.
2020: first train will arrive in the NetherlandsFirst stop, Alstom’s factory in Salzgitter (DE) where the first technical, static tests will take place.
