Netherlands Railways

I had not travelled to Holland until recently. In the meantime, two email correspondents, Gerard Mulder and Charles van Langeveld, sent me a few photos, included here. Thanks, guys!

A recent trip by cruise ship (coincidentally, the MS Rotterdam!) took us to Rotterdam, where I caught up a little on this omission by getting a few tramway shots.
