Amsterdam to Rotterdam, Netherlands

Posted: February 13, 2013 in Netherlands

A nice example of a powerful northern European main line.


Another glimpse of London’s obverse, with the Lea Valley line – Liverpool St via Hackney Downs and on to Cheshunt.

Very familiar territory for me!  The first part of this video especially, where we take a slow ride through the massive railway infrastructure round London Bridge, is exceptional.  The lines thread through the city, crammed in between the buildings of Southwark with trains passing everywhere you look – and with the half-completed Shard looming over all.  I love this stretch of line.
