The Dutch National Railways (NS) doesn't belong to the Dutch state, but is a private company. So the company have sponsering on their trains. The dubbledecksunits is sponsered by the Dutch Olympic Comittee.




A real floating train! The NS is sponser of Amsterdam Sail. The cockpit is replaced by a wheelhouse.

The cab on the pantograph's side in't real, just for estethic reasons.

Are the NS really privately owned? Or have just a "private" legal structure, but still belonging to the governement?

It's the latter and the NS always been a private company since it's formation in 1938. Before that there were 2 major fully private railway companies, but they merged and were nationalized at the same time.

I thought the government was no longer a majority shareholder (50%)?
