Maliebaan Station

On my previous trip to the Netherlands, I had the opportunity to visit the Het Spoorwegmuseum (Dutch Railway Museum). This 1874 railway station has been fully restored to its former glory.

It is a fine-looking place, Ayush.

I imagine trains had an easy life in that country.
Ayush Basu: There certainly was a variety of trains, Ray. For some reason though, I did not see too many trains that had a long life of service. I recall some trains had been retired in about a decade.
Very nice shot of that gorgeous building.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Michael.
Quite a beautiful place Ayush!
Ayush Basu: It is a fine building indeed, Richard.

nice shot, weird statue of two creepy guys lol
Ayush Basu: Yeah, I gave them a wide berth while walking to the entrance, Elaine.
It is wonderful Tom and I like the outstretched arms of lampposts welcoming all to come within.
Ayush Basu: I was rather pleased by the symmetry myself, Chad.
Probably beautiful inside.
Ayush Basu: I will have some shots of the interior, Mary.
No doubt a very interesting pace to go Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I will have some shots of the interior, Brian.
From the days when the railways ruled !
Ayush Basu: Yes, you are quite right about that, Bill.

This looks very smart, Ayush
Ayush Basu: It has been restored lovingly, Lisl.
It's a very handsome building - you ought to visit the Railway Museum in York next, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: I did visit it in 2008, Tom and I have to say it was a fascinating place. If I am in that part of UK again, I intend to make time for it once more.

Your heart might have jumped up to visit this museum. I know that you are a railway fan like some other SCrs.
Ayush Basu: It was a pleasant surprise for me to know of this museum, Philine. I know there are more some museums and heritage railways.
It is an interesting looking railway station smile
Ayush Basu: This was the previous railway station, CP. The current one in service is not too far away from this one.
I like that building and sculpture!
Ayush Basu: I liked the building as well. I did not make much out of the statues though, Elizabeth.

Jolie gare, j'aime les formes arrondies des entrées et des fenêtres.
Ayush Basu: I took liked the features of this building, Martine.
J'aime les éléments architecturaux aussi.
Another place to visit, I see, Ayush. HA! We'll keep each other going for a long time, I think. smile
Ayush Basu: It was a fascinating place, Ginnie. Apart from the static displays, there were some kiddie rides and some shows.

and a great picture.
