The Amsterdam S1/S2 metro's are a series of 25 vehicles (build by BN) which can operate both on the metro network and the tram network (where high floor platforms are available). In Amsterdam, these trains were used on line 51, running on the metro network from Amsterdam central Station to Amsterdam South station, and from there on the tram network to Amstelveen (transfering from 3rd rail power to overhead wire power at Amsterdam South station). Due to platform length on the tram section, trains normally ran in sets of two.
Since the connection between the metro network and the tram network has been removed in 2019, they are now used in metro-mode only on all Amsterdam metro lines (except line 52), usually coupled in sets of three.
Note: On the Amsterdam metro network, the standard vehicle width is 3 meters. On the tram network, the vehicle with is 2,65 meters. As the S1/S2 trains are designed as "Sneltram", they had to be 2,65 meters wide. In order to bridge the gap between the vehicle and the platform edge on the metro stations, stepping boards are provided on the sides of the vehicle, which are rotated down when the vehicle transitions to the tram network (where the platforms are set to 2,65 meters vehicle width). However, Metrosimulator was originally build using the Rotterdam metro system for its standards, which also uses 2,65 meters vehicle width. Therefore, in the simulator, all platforms are already for 2,65 meters vehicle width, and the mentioned stepping boards would be useless in the simulator. For this reason, this function has not been included in the model.
The following variants of this train are available:
- GVB livery 1994
- GVB livery 2004
- GVB livery 2015
- GVB livery 2021
- Repaintable version
The texture file for the repaintable vehicle can be found in \Data\Amsterdam\textures.
When released, this train is part of the "Amsterdam" pack, which includes these trains:

Operation in Metrosimulator
Automatic Train Protection
The following automatic train protection (ATP) systems have been installed:
- RET ATB (LZB801)
- ZUB (222c)
- Coded Manual (for use on the Central Line map, 2021 and Repaint versions only)
- ATP OFF (for use on the City of Thames map)
The train will automatically select the correct system when you spawn it in one of the networks. Switch-overs between ATB and ZUB will happen automatically as you transition between systems, just like on the RET SG3 trains.
(The user-operable ATP selector switch option has not been installed, as it blocks the automatic ATB-ZUB vv transitions, and the AI doesn't operate this switch.)

Codes for activities
To use them in your own activities, you can use these codes:
<train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_1994.xml"/> <train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_2004.xml"/> <train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_2015.xml"/> <train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_2021.xml"/> <train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_RP.xml"/> Repaintable version
Example of how to place a M5 train in an Simvliet activity:
<consist start="BPD1"> <train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_2015.xml"> <cab id="0" enabled="true" ai="364"/> <car id="0" scrollsign3="13" scrollsign2="64"/> <car id="1" scrollsign3="13"/> </train> <train pack="Amsterdam" file="S1_2015.xml"> <car id="0" scrollsign3="13"/> <car id="1" scrollsign3="13" scrollsign2="64"/> </train> </consist>
Note: The "scrollsign3", for the passenger line diagrams, must be set for each carriage individually if you want the simulator to show these upon loading the activity. You can always also set them manually once the simulation has started (in which case it effects the complete train at once).
Same goes for "scrollsign2", the service number display (numbers 01-99).
