Once a railroad…



Once a railroad…, originally uploaded by beeldmark.

This path used to be the track of the railroad from Apeldoorn to Zwolle.
Opened in 1887, closed 1947 for passenger trains and 1972 for cargotrains. (acc to Wikipedia), http://www.stationsweb.nl). There was a special station at Palace Het Loo, where the king (Willem III) resided in summer.

I remember having seen a (steam) train with tourists riding on this track when I was young, in de middle of the 70’s I think. I lived 50 meters from this track, so this is a nostalgic place for me…
