Thanks dear Phil. The gypsy in me is still so very much alive that it whispers in my ear, whenever I am in the Amsterdam Central Station with the international trains, or in a harbour: 'Jump on that train or on that boat, and let us go away...'

Ja Hans, dat vind ik ook. Herinner je je nog dat ik er eerder een serie over op FT heb gezet omdat mijn grootvader betrokken was bij al het houtwerk aan dit station? Zie link:

nice perspective foto, the station has some wonderful iron work that you can see clearly in original view,do you happen to know the age of this station dear A:)?

Thanks dear R. It is great that especially this station arouses your interest. For me it is very special because my dear grandfather, also worked on it during several years!!!

The architect was: D.A.N Margadant.
The station was finished in between 1906-1908.

My grandfather, who was a master carpenter, was involved as a supervisor of the red wood work lavishly used in this station.
