|The Sprinter Lighttrain (SLT) is an electric multiple unit (EMU) used on Sprinter-services by the Nederlandse Spoorwegen. The units were designed to help phase out the use of 60's and 70's rolling stock such as the older Mat '64.|
There are four- and six-car consists, that because of their shorter carriage lengths are similar in overall length to the older three- and four-car trains.
The SLT 'working' designation is S70 (four-car, 69,36 m long) and S100 (six-car, 100,54 m long). The first trains began running tests in the Netherlands in 2008 and were put into service in 2009.
Through the use of Jacobs bogies, the inter-carriage joins are short and wide. A signature feature of the SLT is the large amount of 'airiness' in the carriages. This is possible because of the large windows, and that there are no separating walls or doors between the carriages. The only walls are glass ones, used to separate 1st and 2nd class seating areas.
