Formations[edit]

  • A set made up of Bvs + ABv + Bv + mDDM can seat 448.

A formation of Bvs + ABv + Bv + Bv + 1700 has a set number of 74xx and the last two digits are the same as the last two on the Bvs of the set. A formation of Bvs + ABv + Bv + mDDM has a set number of 78xx and the last two digits are the same as the last two on the Bvs of the set.

Modernisation[edit]

Modernized DD-AR

In 2009 NedTrain has started to modernise 240, including the 50 mDDM coaches, out of 308 coaches of the DD-AR rolling stock. The other 68 coaches will be taken out of service and subsequently sold or scrapped. The modernisation will transform the coaches to modern Intercity trains, which will be used as EMUs. The new name of the DD-AR is NID, which stands for 'Nieuwe Intercity Dubbeldekker (New Intercity Double decker)'. The upper decks will be quiet, meant for working purposes whereas the lower decks will be for fun and enjoyment. The 240 modernised coaches will form 30 EMUs consisting of ABvs + Bv + ABv + mBs (mBs = mDDM) and 20 EMUs consisting of ABvs + Bv + ABv + Bv + ABv + mBs; so a total of 50 EMUs will be formed. The first new EMU will come into service in 2012, the last EMU in 2013. After the modernisation of the DD-ARs, the 1700 series locomotives will no longer be used, since all new NID trains have a mDDM powercar.
