Ansaldo Attacks Dutch Railways Frontally

The Italian train manufacturer Ansaldo demands that the Dutch Railways NS stick to their contract with them. They say that for nine years there have been intense contacts between the two companies. NS project teams have regularly visited the Ansaldo factory. Ansaldo requests to be shown the secret reports of NS and the Belgian railways NMBS on the basis of which these claim that they do not want the trains anymore. Ansaldo says that their trains function properly and have been tested in detail also by NS staff. The trains have also acquired the certificates of approval of the Dutch and Belgian inspectorates.
