Articulated locomotives in the Netherlands

Introduction

To the best of my knowledge no one ever tried to describe the history of articulated steam locomotives in the Netherlands comprehensively. So I will try to attempt that on these pages.

More than just one...

At first sight it isn't much. The conditions in the Netherlands seldom required articulated locomotives. The only generally recognised true articulated Dutch steam locomotive is the 0-6-0+0-6-0 tramway locomotive no 51 of the Limburg Tramway Company (LTM). In most accounts that is end of story. Wrongly so, I found that when I slowly dug deeper into the matter. There's much more to it. So far I have found the following categories and locomotives
