Austerity 2-8-0 No. 4434 of the Dutch state railways - NS or Nederlandse Spoorwegen - is seen here basking in the evening sun at Rotterdam's Feijenoord depot on 23/9/56. Built in November 1943 and numbered 77400, it was shipped to Europe in August 1945 and entered NS stock allocated to Amersfoort on an unspecified date in 1946. Withdrawal came in November 1957 but I don't know from which depot that was.
