Railways in the Netherlands Railways in the Netherlands

A Brief History, 1834-1994

by Veenendaal Jr., Augustus J.

Europe’s Lowlands is a country of windmills, canals and ... a very extensive railway system which in addition to freight is a significant people mover. Just like the waterways did earlier, the railways in the mid 1800s connected towns and cities, opening up the country before it had highways. ”When one takes into account the comprehensiveness of [Veenendaal’s] discussion, its solid foundation in the sources, and the excellent illustrations that accompany the clearly written text, one can only conclude that this book will remain the standard English-language history of the Dutch railways well into the future . . . Railways in the Netherlands is a solid account of an important railway system. It provides reliable information on all aspects of Dutch railways.” - Enterprise and Society.
