This engine was a prototype 1400HP freight locomotive built for Dutch Railways. It was part of a project to build a standard European locomotive, but the prototype was unreliable, and the project was cancelled as unnecessary.
| 2800 Class "Kreupele Marie" (Dutch for "Crippled Marie"). This prototype diesel locomotive, no. 2801, was designed by Matériel de Traction Diesel Electrique (MTDE). This firm was established by the Dutch Werkspoor and French Schneiderworks with the purpose of designing and building standardised diesel lokomotives. In 1962 the prototype came into NS service and was well known for its defects; hence it was given its nickname. Therefore this elegant locomotive was not long in service either. It was withdrawn in 1970. It was built by Werkspoor in Utrecht in 1962.|
