Hi, i'm just new on this forum, I'm from the Netherlands and like trains. occasionaly i do some railfanning (when i got the time)

here are some videos:

1: Trains at Keverdijk, a nice railfan location if you want to film or take pictures of trains



2: Filmed at Keverdijk and Stroe, The event of 60 years service for the dutch Class 1200. There are still 3 of those giants in active service at the EETC company.



3: 8 minute long video about the dutch 'Mat 64 series, there are only 28 units left of this train, since most of them are going to the scrapyard :(



Have fun :) can't wait untill i go railfanning in the US next summer :D

new video about Intercity trains from Berlin to Schiphol (amsterdam) driven with the NS 1312, a historic Dutch locomotive. In France this type of locomotives made a world record of 331 Km/h, over here they didn't pass the 130 - 140 Km/h...


Have fun :)

Got RAW?
Interesting service between Schipol and Berlin, how long does it take? Obviously longer than a Tegal to AMS flight but would be a lot more interesting. Do you know what station(s) it call in Berlin?

Crossrail Video Productions

New footage from Switzerland. This footage was made in 2009, when i made a trip to Switzerland. In my opinion it's still the most beutifull railfan country in the world :)

Freight train runs trough the Station of Brunnen.

BOB train at Interlaken and surroundings (Narrow Gauge trains)


We also have our own Facebook Page now :) just for our Crossrail videos. Check it out if you like our videos.

Marty, it runs on steam!
Nice work! I fell in love with The Netherlands when I first went there for a month in the late 80s. I chased as many trains as I could (pacing a train to Vlissingen on my way to the ferry crossing to Breskens was an amazing experience) and spent a day at the museum at Utrecht once. Haven’t been back there in over 20 years and would love to go again, especially in the summertime!

well, It has chanced a lot in the last 20 years... expecialy the Railroad scene, our railroads are without doubt the busiest of Europe.

and here are some new video's again, focused on the Schiphol line (Dutch international airport) and the traintypes running on it...

1: NS HiSpeed with a NMBS SNCF type 28 locomotive

2: NS SLT (Sprinter Lightrail Train) with commuter trains

3: NS DD-AR with Commuter trains and locomotive 1700 series. this will become something historic, since the trains are getting a total renewal and the locomotives will dissapear...

4: NS VIRM as Intercities to Amsterdam and Rotterdam (also Vlissingen)

Have fun watching the video's :)

Dutch, German and Swiz train vids

Hi all,

A new update again! 5 new video's about trains here in The Netherlands, Germany (from 2002) and Switzerland (2009).

The first video is about the dutch commuter trains called 'Sprinters'. Both types are seen on this video.

Seccond Dutch video is about the trains that run trough Leidschendam, the Suburbs of The Hague (the dutch goverment city, not the capitol as many people think or say...)

Now, we go to Germany! for this video, we take you to cologne Central station and back to 2002. See the various trains and collors that these days are almost to completely gone over there...

And finaly, 2 last video's from Switzerland, still my favorite country together with Luxembourg.

2 narrow gauge passenger trains arrive at the station of Interlaken East while sunset.

and of course, last but not least.... maybe even the best video from all of these... the "Ballenberg Dampfbahn" steamtrain, running down a Mountain.

and i know it's a bit late, but i still wish everybody a healty and good 2012 :)

If you want to see a real variety of trains every 2 to 3 minutes, you ought to go in the other direction - to Japan.

Here are a few you can see:

yeah, i know... but i have a friend in the states (also a railfanner) so that's why i'm going to the states this year... Japan has more trains and is also on my list to go to, but it's more expensive than america for me and Japan doesn't have the Big Giants that america has.

and btw. over here in Holland we also have a big variaty of trains on most lines, we have the bussiest RR of Europe, it's just that you need to go the the right places and time to get the best shots.
