Railfreight in the Netherlands is changing fast! New operators now compete with the national incumbent Railion. The first open access company to run was the Rotterdam based SHORT LINES and we join them hauling the oil tanker empties back from Switzerland. For maximum flexibility SHORT LINES have leased two General Motors Class 66 locomotives from Portabrook- hence the locos are simply known as PB's! Our journey starts on the Dutch border at Venlo where the HGK MAK locomotive hands over the train and the 66 gets underway. Without station calls to interrupt our progress it's amazing how quickly we cover the ground. Utrecht is reached in 90 minutes, not much more than would be required by an IC! Along the way we have time to discuss the direction rail freight is taking in Holland, and of course point out the places of interest as we pass. Your SHORT LINES driver, Chris Westerduin, chats away happily in English to give another angle on the run. Part 2 takes us through the National Railway Museum, the Amsterdam suburbs, Amsterdam CS and then down to the docks..
