The NS locomotive series 2900 is a small series of five diesel-electric locomotives deployed by the Dutch Railways between 1970 and 1974. They were taken over by the NS from the State Mines in 1970.

Following a demonstration in 1955 with a diesel locomotive G12 7707 built by General Motors and Electro-Motive Division in several European countries, including the Netherlands, the State Mines placed an order for five locomotives. Until 1970 (the 155 to 1971) they served to draw coal trains from the mines in Brunssum and Hoensbroek to Nuth and the port in Stein.

Nederlandse Spoorwegen
Due to the closure of the mines, the locomotives became redundant and were then sold to the NS, where they came in handy in view of the increasing train traffic after 'Spoorslag '70'. The NS divided the locomotives into the series 2900. This was also the first series of diesel locomotives in the new grey-yellow livery.
