    Anyone else think the front ends of those are ugly?
    Rather ungainly, certainly. Not much worse than a Hondekop or Koploper though.
    Looks like Snoopy.

    Snoopy looks waayyy better ;)

    Yes, these are hideous... And no, the Hondekop and Koploper sets look infinitely better then this! (but that's not too hard :P)
    Correction on Peter's captions: they are delayed by 5 years, in testing now for about 2 and still not passed for regular service, even at the 2004 requirements (which were significantly less stringent then today's...). Notwithstanding that, NS/HSA is planning on entering these into service sometime this year.... :rolleyes:
