When Veolia started operating Nijmegen-Roermond in December 2006
they didn't have new trainsets yet. For the time being they hired
"Wadloper" DMUs from NS (these were used by Arriva before).
In Autumn the first new trainset of type GTW2/6 from Stadler was delivered. The first sets entered service with the timetable change in December 2007. Together with the longer GTW2/8 they will operate all trains on the line Nijmegen-Venlo-Roermond. In Spring 2008 the last ones were taken into service and all "Wadloper" DMUs were taken out of service.
To extend the capacity of the trainsets, nrs. 206-210 got an extra middle car and were renumbered 357-360. This action was finished by December 2009, after which two diesel trainsets type DM'90 hired from NS were returned.
