NS rolling stock available for sale

NS is continuously renewing its fleet of rolling stock. Older trains are being refurbished or replaced by new-built rolling stock. It is our aim to do this in a sustainable manner. Trains that we no longer need, are frequently put on sale. On this page, you find an overview of the rolling stock that is currently on sale or will become so within the coming years. NS offers its rolling stock only to other railway operators or leasing companies, and the trains may only be used for commercial rail operations.
