On 18th July 2004 together with some friends, the webmaster visit the Rhusden Society in Rhusden. A interesting visit! We could look at the engine from all sides to get pictures wich could help our Society to restore the NS 162. As the people at Rhusden does not have any information on this series, we will help them with the information we have. The following pictures were taken at the visit:
