The MG2 given, one does not look at the bogie.

Old machine driver does not learn to drive SG4s

Every metro in your line.

Give God round to those who have no legs.

In the house of season chief, the wife is the one who commands.

It is spoken in a 2200, and the nose appears.

Locomotive painted fresh, graffiters afraid.

There are locomotives that come as well.

SG2 away from the view, never far from the heart!

An railcar is better than two carriages without a motor.

Not everything light is gold ... it can be SG2 type Bursa!

The vaporous died of old ... abandoned somewhere.

Containers, take us the Sggmrs.

Who travels without paying a ticket, travels twice.

The Molenwijk and Zuid line is not a day number.

All as lines will give to Central Station.

A SG2 never comes alone.

Old ones are as vaporous.

The station chiefs are shaken, the derailments come.

Trains pass, and spotters photograph.

In the morning, the HSM. In the afternoon, the RijndamRail.

When a RSG3 horn the SG3 lower the pantographs.

Who hasn't RSG3, travels by RSG2.

Going slow you get at Simvliet Poort.

Simvliet Centrum and De Bergen were not made at one only day.

It's better late than cancelled.

Platforms and hold - Issue VVI (train hold) command to all platforms in a particular area, essentially holding trains at platforms.
Platforms and hold is a London Underground parlance referring to an instruction given from the Controller to remain at platforms and await further instructions

PNR - Hand your train over to the AI and take it back when it returns, or take over an AI train and hand it back to the AI at the station where you took it
Physical Needs Relief (PNR) is a London Underground parlance referring to the handover of a train to another driver whilst the original driver needs to use the toilet

Couple with buffer: drive with disabled ATB/ZUB to buffer with a maximal speed. (In real life, the cabin, lights, destination display is all destroyed)
Destroyer: drive the train on left side and crash with other left side AI train
Duck transporter :lol: : stop on Dagobertlaan and drive to Statenpolder
Tropical express: drive the M6 from Tropicana to Stadhuis and stop only on Rijndam Megastores

Well, let's liven up this topic, with some nicknames I made for rolling stock in metrosim. Also with explanation, why did they got their nickname.

Metro trains and railway trains
MG2= 81-717's dutch cousin (It has some similarities with 81-717, but not so much)

SG2= Old hybrid (It can run on both catenary and 3rd rail and compared to R/SG3, it's older)

RSG2= Old hybrid with ZUB (Same reason as SG2, but it has only ZUB as a security system)

MG2/1= MG2's younger brother (It has same properties as MG2 and compared to MG2 it's newer)

SG2/1= SG2's younger brother (Same reason as MG2/1)

R/SG3= New hybrid (It can run on both catenary and 3rd rail and compared to SG2, it's newer)
= Universal train (It can go everywhere on metro network, regardless of traction power supply and security system installed)

81-717= Legend (It's well known by most of the world's metro enthusiasts and every other metrosims, which I have played so far, has this train included)

MVG Type A= Blender (When it goes at maximum speed, it emits sound similiar to spun up blender)
= Lockheed (When it goes at low speed, it emits sound similiar to Lockheed Electra aircraft, with idling engines)

LU 1973= Old noodle (It's small, long and compared to LU 1995, it's older)

LU 1995= New noodle (Same reason as LU 1973, but compared to LU 1973, it's newer)

LU D78= Narrow doors (It's doors are narrow, sometimes getting people in trouble, when getting on or off)

LU S7/S8= Sausage dog (They're very long, even they can't fit on most platforms)

Glasgow SPT= Cigar (It has a round shape, it is short and has orange and gray colors, thus resembling a lit cigar)

Diesel locomotive= Rambo (It's strong)

Pipovagen= Moving toolbox (It's just a car with a workshop inside)

Rail grinder= Sparkle (When it's grinding rails, it makes a huge rain of sparks resembling sparkle)

Flat tray= Moving platform (it's just platform on the wheels ;) )

NS 2200= Big Rambo (It's strong and bigger than RET Diesel locomotive)

NS 1700= Sprinter (It's commonly used on express trains)

FGV 2300= Narrow runner (It runs on 1000mm not on 1435mm)

Arend steam train= Racist train (The hissing sound during ride sounds like it's saying: F***k you n*****s)

Trams
KTM 23= Short dwarf (Looks small at first sight and it's short)

KTM 31= Long dwarf (Same reason as KTM 23, but it's longer than KTM 23)

Flexity outlook= Skoda 14T's cousin (It looks similiar to Skoda 14T "Porshe")

TTC CLRV= Tatra T3's canadian cousin (It looks similiar to Tatra T3 tram)

TTC ALRV= Tatra K4's canadian cousin (It looks similiar to Tatra K4 tram)

TTC PCC= Tatra T1's canadian cousin (Tatra T1 was hugely inspired by PCC tram)

RET 400= Wooden box (It's made of wood and has square shape)

K4500= Skoda 15t's cousin (It looks similiar to Skoda 15T tram)

Fictive stock
MG2 extended= 81-717 dutch cousin (Same reason as MG2)

SG2 extended= Old hybrid (Same reason as SG2)

SG4= Placeholder (It was made as a substitute stock for Rijndam railway service, because that time, there was no railway stock available)

MCV 9100 MP= Car-train hybrid (It has tires)
= Parisian rip-off (It's obviously inspired by Parisian metro system)
= Ninja train (Simvliet version of MCV 9100 MP has black stripe above lights on the front resembling a ninja. Also the train is silent. It doesn't "click" when it runs through the rail joints)

MCV 9200 MP AT= Automatic car-train hybrid (Same reason as MCV 9100 MP, but is fully automatic)
= Automatic Parisian rip-off (Same reason as MCV 9100 MP, but is fully automatic)
= Automatic ninja train (Same reason as MCV 9100 MP, but is fully automatic)

HSM= Lightning train (It's the fastest train in metrosim)

KTM Citylink= Tram-train (It's the fastest tram in metrosim, completely ideal for tram-train or interurban tram expressway service)

NS ICF= Deutche Bahn rip-off (obviously inspired by Deutche Bahn's passenger stock)

RR-DDM= City elephant's cousin (It looks similiar to CD 471 [City Elephant] series)

If you want to make a very fast ride, just disable ATB/ZUB, put trottle to 1.00 and enjoy.
