TTR004 Netherlands railways Rail Tour -Workgroep Special Excursion

We explore the Netherlands, from the Hook of Holland and Rotterdam in the west to Hengelo in the east, a few kilometres from the German border. We hitch a lift with a special charter train organised by Workgroep 1501 and travel to Dordrecht where we see Dutch Railways, NS, hard at work: double deck passenger trains, Thalys High Speed passenger trains and Europe's heaviest freight train. Onward, parallel to the route of the new freight only Betuwe line now under construction to 's Hertogenbosch and its ultra modern station. Across flat farm land via Arnhem to Hengelo for a rail open day sponsored by NS. All the fun of the fair, including a steam run by and then back via Utrecht to Rotterdam. In complete contrast we spend a morning at the CORUS steel works, the largest in the Netherlands, riding their internal rail system and viewing the steel industry at work. A unique rail experience organised by Platform 5.  Narrated  RT 50 mins ©FHP 2000
