Product information "NS mP3000"

A reproduction of the NS mP3000 test train that used to be seen all over the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Dutch national railways) network.

History:
In the 60's, special mail trains were developed for the PTT (the Dutch postal service) to replace the old 'Blokkendoos' wagons. The series was called mP3000 and was derived from the Mat'64 passenger train. They were built between 1965 and 1966 by Werkspoor. In contrast to the Mat'64 that had Scharfenberg couplings, the mP3000 had traditional screw couplings and buffers, allowing it to connect to the specially-built post wagons and other freight wagons.

In 1992 the mP3032 was converted to an ATB test train and received the name 'mP Jules'. Later, the test company was split off from the NS and the test train became property of Eurailscout.
In 1995 the NS took over some more of the old motorpost trains from the PTT. These ones were used for light freight and cargo duty. From May 1997 there was no longer any mail transported by rail. At this point the last of the motorpost trains were sold to NS Cargo, now Railion. These were also pressed into light freight service.

Four of the motorpost trains (the mP 3024, mP 3029, mP 3033 and mP 3034) were converted to test trains for ETCS/ERTMS. Once they finished their duties there, they were sent to Railion and ProRail, and finally to Eurailscout. One of these was eventually converted to another test train, the 'mP Jim'.
