2007 (4): Personalised stamps of the Dutch Postal Services (TNT)

Two stamps of 0,44 euros in commemoration of the opening of the first Dutch railway line: Amsterdam - Haarlem.
These stamps were issued in a set of 100 stamps: 2 stamps per historical event. The fifty historical events comprise the canon of Dutch history. They were only available in sheets by subscription. Although they could be used as postage stamps, hardly anybody did so. They were stuck away in collectors' albums. They were included in a catalogue of Dutch personalized stamps and therefore I chose to categorize them here and not as cinderellas.

2010 (2): Personalised stamps Hertogpost Stamp Expo

This stamp of 0,44 euros shows the so-called Moerputten bridge. Moerputten is an area of natural beauty between 's-Hertogenbosch and Waalwijk. It consists of marshland (Dutch "moer", English "moor"), which made it difficult to create a railway line through it. Still the "halvezolenlijn", as it is called, was built as a line for the transportation of goods between 1886 and 1890. In 1950 the passenger service stopped to exist and in 1972 it was closed down all together. Moerputten bridge is still there and may become part of a walkway in the future.
De halvezolenlijn (English: half soles line) was called thus, because it connected several places with a flourishing shoe industry. It ran from Lage Zwaluwe to 's-Hertogenbosch. The area it ran through was also called "Langstraat", as the villages and small towns originated as a long row of buildings alongside only a few streets.

2010 (12): several Rotterdam trams and metro trains

The following trams are shown:

the first Rotterdam tram + RET 708
Rotterdam metro + Rotterdam tram
Rotterdam tram + RET tram
RET series 206 + modern tram

The tram network in and around Rotterdam has nine lines that run daily and two that run on special occasions. The tram network is operated by the Rotterdam Electric Tram (RET). The track gauge is 1435 millimeters (standard gauge), the catenary voltage is 600 volts and the tram network is suitable for one-way trams.
The RET has had two tramway companies in Rotterdam as its predecessor, the RTM and the RETM respectively. The RTM (Rotterdamsche Tramweg Maatschappij) was founded in 1878. The first horse tram in Rotterdam ran in 1879. The RTM ran until 1904 with horse trams and steam trams in and around the not yet so extensive city. In addition to the RTM, there were two smaller tram companies in and around Rotterdam. In 1882, the Schielandsche Tramweg-Maatschappij opened a horse tram line with 1067 mm gauge from Hofplein via Schiekade and Bergweg to Hillegersberg. The Schiedamsche Tramweg-Maatschappij opened a horse tram line in Schiedam in 1902 from the station via the Koemarkt to the Hoofdplein. This tram line had a gauge of 1000 mm.
A new form of urban transport, the electric tram, came with the foundation of the new RETM (Rotterdamsche Electric Tramweg Maatschappij) in 1904. On September 18, 1905, the RETM started using the first electric tram line, line 1 Honingerdijk - Beurs - Park. Electricity was temporarily supplied by an emergency power station. On October 15, 1906, the municipality began supplying electricity from the new power station and the concession began to run for 21 years. The same year, five lines were added. In 1907 and 1908 more lines were added and the total came to nine lines. The maximum was reached in 1930 when the Rotterdam tram had 25 lines. The coaches were dark blue in the beginning, later cream and from the 1930s on yellow ocher.
Since March 27, 1907, the horse tram to Overschie was the only remaining non-electric line of the RETM. The horse trams to Hillegersberg and Schiedam also continued to run. These were not part of the RETM network. The horse tram in Schiedam was discontinued on December 31, 1917 without replacement. The line to Hillegersberg became the property of the RETM in 1919. This converted the line in the years 1922 and 1923 to an electric tramline on standard gauge. On the line to Overschie the horse trams were gradually replaced in the years 1924 and 1925 by trams with petrol engines. In 1928 this line was replaced by a bus line.
Since 1904, the RTM has exclusively provided transport from Rotterdam South to and from the South Holland and Zeeland islands with steam and diesel trams as well as an extensive fleet of ferries. After several years of negotiations, the RETM has transferred the tram company to the municipality. The Council decision fell on April 4, 1927 and on October 15 of that year, RETM became a municipal transport company and was named RET (Rotterdam Electric Tram). The 1,903 employees are employed by the municipality.
In 1905 the first electric trams arrived in Rotterdam, the series 1-20. These motorcars with two slightly curved windows at the top and dark blue painted car bodies with brown side panels and many Art Nouveau motifs, were built by the Belgian firm Metallurgique from Hainaut. They are very similar to the first electric trams in The Hague (also series 1-20). The balconies are open so that the driver is exposed to all good and bad weather. 12 cars had long benches with a total of 20 seats and the other cross benches with a total of 19 seats. In 1912 these trams were painted cream and had closed balconies. In 1922 the 2 curved side windows were replaced by 6 small windows. These trams went out of service in 1931. Motor cars 1 and 11 have been preserved for posterity as museum trams and are ready to drive. The series consisted of two parts, 1-12 and 13-20. Car 11, which is still present, has cross benches, but it was originally car 17. Contrary to what was normal with the RET, that the box number determined the carriage number, for car 11 the truck number determined the carriage number.
As in The Hague, the next series of trams for Rotterdam is large due to the enormous expansion of the tram network (see map). The trams from the series 21-126 have three side windows and long benches, in this case with a total of 18 seats. The "" series 21-70 "" was delivered by the Belgian company Ragheno in 1906. Another Belgian company delivered the "" series 71-90 "" the same year and the Metallurgique company also delivered the "" series 91-106 in 1906. "". In 1907 Allan from Rotterdam delivers the "" series 107-126 "". All these trams are delivered in dark blue colour but they are later painted cream. From the start, these trams already have a screened-off balcony. All these trams went out of service in the years 1931 to 1934. In 1908 the tram manufacturer Allan from Rotterdam built a follow-up series: 127-151. These too were first dark blue and later cream. This series was modernized by the RET in 1931 and 1932. They then got the new RET colours black and yellow ocher. In the years between 1938 and 1941 most of them were converted into trailers. The last ones went out of service in 1950. The motor cars 86 and 119 have been preserved as museum trams and are ready to drive. It is worth noting that car 119 also ran in yellow ocher with black.
Series 152-176 entered service in 1913. These were trams with 4 side windows with two small ventilation windows above each window. They had 18 seats on cross benches. Due to material shortages caused by the First World War, the "" series 177-201 "" was not delivered until 1921. It concerned two sub-series that differed from each other by a slight difference in length and a greater distance between the two axes.
They got their nickname 'Park wagons' because they first came into service on the then neat line 1 to the Park. In 1930 the cars were rebuilt and got the well-known black and ocher yellow equipment, doors and a pantograph as pantograph instead of a tow bar. In the Second World War, 7 cars were changed to trailers and received a 1 for the car number. In 1946 14 power cars were sold to HTM. The other trams went out of service around 1950. As a museum tram, the 192 has been preserved and restored in good condition (ex-sand motor car 2403).
In 1924 the Delmez series was delivered, numbered 202-221 and built by Allan. In appearance they resemble the Hague series 800 with their 3 large and 2 three-quarter side windows. They were delivered with two single-axle bogies but during the renovation in the 1930s they got a fixed two-axle undercarriage. They were therefore the tallest two-axle vehicles that have served with the RET. Most trams in this series were taken out of service in 1956 and 1957. The 210 and 220 motor cars have been preserved as museum trams, only the 220 is operational.
Between 1929 and 1931, the Rotterdam Electric Tram purchased a total of 170 four-axle electric motor cars. With the extension of line 5 to Schiebroek on January 25, 1969, their regular services came to an end; they continued to serve as rush-hour trams into the early 1970's. A few dozen wagons were used for a long time - the last until 2007 - as work wagons, some have been preserved as museum trams.
The RET, which succeeded the RETM, received in its new director Dr. Ing. J.G.J.C. Nieuwenhuis a very progressive man. He modernized the Rotterdam tram with a large series of four-axle trams on two bogies. In 1929, the series 401-450, 12-meter trams, painted in black and yellow ocher, arrived with a large central balcony that accelerated entry and exit. Allan in Rotterdam, Talbot in (Aachen) and Werkspoor in Utrecht built and delivered the trams. Twenty trailers (1001-1020) were delivered by Allan and Beijnes in Haarlem. These were converted into series 451-470 motor cars in 1931.
Another large order followed in 1931, the series 471-570, with more powerful engines, so that the RET now had 170 almost identical power cars that could be used on all lines. The 551-570 were built by Beijnes in Haarlem. The series 1001-1020 trailers (second series, built in 1931) were carried on heavily occupied lines 2 and 3. These trams were among the most modern in pre-war Europe. From 1943 a small series of motor cars followed, as one-way cars, the class 301-304, partly equipped with spare motors and partly with the strong engines of the 471-474 because these trams almost always ran with trailers. Two power cars destroyed by fire in 1943 were rebuilt in 1946 as one-way cars, identical to the 301-304, these became the 305 and 306. Four power cars did not survive the Second World War. Until the mid-1960s - in 1965 the weaker four-axle wagons 401-474 and the trailers had already been removed - these trams formed the backbone of the Rotterdam tram company. Many cars have been given a museum destination, including the Electric Museum Tram Line Amsterdam and the Open Air Museum in Arnhem. The 507 resides in Amsterdam, the 520, 535 and 536 reside in Arnhem.
After the liberation, the RET purchased two prototypes of a more modern type of four-axle vehicles in 1948, the motor cars 571-572, renumbered 100-101 in 1950. They continued on the pre-war success of the four-axle vehicles. The series 102-135 followed in 1950-1951. This tram type built by Allan was already outdated because for years there had been experiments with other tram types, including trams (four-axle and articulated) with passenger circulation. Only the use of aluminum in the car bodies in this series can be seen as modern. The series had matching trailers, the series 1021-1056 delivered between 1948 and 1951, which formed a beautiful ensemble with 100-135. They were taken out of service between 1968 and 1983. The motor cars 109, 115, 123 and 130 have been preserved as museum trams, only the 123 and 130 are operational. Three of the trailers have been preserved: the 1040, 1042 and 1050. The 1042 is operational as a trailer with the 123, the 1050 is operational at the Tramline Nederlands Openluchtmuseum in Arnhem.
In the 1950s the RET was looking for replacement trams to dispose of the last two-axle cars. These became the series 1-15 (1956; four-axle) and 231-244 (1957; six-axle). These two series were built by Wagonfabrik Schindler A.G. in Pratteln, (Switzerland). At the RET they had seen similar lightweight trams in Basel that made a big impression. They also wanted to introduce passenger circulation - get in at the back, pass a seated conductor and get out in front or in the middle. The cars were also the first with a lowered entrance. While for the classic four-axle vehicles two big steps were needed to get in, with the Schindlers passengers could suffice with one small step. Due to the multiple doors, passengers could no longer hinder each other when getting in and out, which accelerated the service. Unfortunately they were notable for their restless gait; they fluctuated. These trams were disposed of between 1982 and 1985. Two have been preserved for the museum, the 15 and 242.
After the Schindlers, the Düsseldorf tram factory Düwag became the main supplier to the RET. The series 351-386 was the first bi-articulated series according to this already proven recipe. They were delivered in 1964. The series 251-274 was delivered in 1965 as a single-articulated variant. In 1975 this series was rebuilt into bi-articulated trams and renumbered 301-324. The single-articulated coaches of the series 601-635 built by Werkspoor from a few years later (1969) were almost all rebuilt in the eighties into bi-articulated cars; they received a "1" for their number and thus formed the series 1600. Many of the trams from the series 251-274, 351-386 and 600/1600 are still extensively rebuilt and repainted. Most were disposed of in the 1980s and 1990s; in 2003 they were last employed by the RET. A few trams of the 1600 series ended up in Romania after disposal. The 385, 608 and 1624 trams have been preserved in Rotterdam as museum trams. The 631 is located at the Dutch Open Air Museum tram line in Arnhem. 319 (ex-269) is located on the NDSM site in Amsterdam-Noord.
In the 1980s, 100 new articulated trams in public transport yellow were delivered. These trams were numbered in the 700 and 800 series and replaced the old articulated trams from the 1950s and 1960s. These series were of a new concept, the type developed for the RET Floating Articulated Tram Car (ZGT). The 701-750 series has been completely rebuilt, while the 801-850 series uses the traction and control system of the 301-324 and 351-386 series.
In the nineties, the Rotterdam colours green and white were introduced as the house colour (later replaced by green and silver). The last trams of the 800 series were taken out of service in June 2012. Some of the 800 series coaches have been sold to Gala?i in Romania. Almost all 700s were still in service until 2012. Of the 700's, the last copies were decommissioned and disposed of in 2015. The 717, 741 and 749 and the 819, 834 and 840 are now part of the collection of the RoMeO Foundation as a museum tram.
As part of the HOV concept "TramPlus", the RET has purchased 60 Citadis 302 trams (5-piece) for 100 million euros. The Rotterdam version of the Citadis has a 100% low floor, is 2.40 meters wide and offers a seat for 63 passengers. At 31.5 meters, these were the longest trams in the Netherlands on delivery. On August 25, 2003, the Citadis was officially presented to the public. Since then, these trams have been used on tram line 20, later they were also used on lines 21, 23, 25 and 2. In 2007, the Citadis 2 was ordered, which are slightly shorter than the Citadis 302 coaches and are therefore suitable for the lines that have not (fully) been brought up to TramPlus level: lines 4, 7 and 8. These trams started to run in 2011 and are numbered in the 2100 series. The entire series was delivered in spring 2012; the RET now had 113 copies of the Citadis. In the meantime, one copy with collision damage has been disposed of.

2010 (13): Personalised Decemberstamp of Christmas scene at the Hanze Line

Train at Hanzelijn:
The Hanzelijn is a fifty kilometer long railway between the Dutch towns of Lelystad and Zwolle. The railway runs through the provinces of Flevoland, Gelderland and Overijssel and has two newly built stations between the stations Lelystad Centrum and Zwolle, namely Dronten and Kampen Zuid. The name of the line is taken from the Hanseatic League, the medieval federation of trading cities of which Zwolle and Kampen were part. The Hanzelijn, completed in 2012, can be regarded as an extension of the Flevolijn, completed in 1988, which runs from Weesp station via Almere to Lelystad. The operation of both lines forms a single entity and is in the hands of the NS. The owner and manager of the stations and the railway is ProRail.

By subscription one could get hold of this sheet about Goes. The third stamp on the sheet shows one of the passenger carriages of the Goes – Borsele line (SGB). The railway operates a fleet of seventeen locomotives: nine diesel engines, six steam engines, and two relatively unusual 1,500 volt Alstom electric engines.

From here trains operate to 's-Gravenpolder, Nisse, Kwadendamme, Hoedekenskerke, and finally Baarland. When operating the service using vintage diesel railcars, trains call at all six stations. However, on steam operating days, trains call only at the stations in Goes, Kwadendamme, and Hoedekenskerke. On intensive service days the railway operates both steam trains and diesel railcar trains, but with the same rules about stations.

2019: Personalised stamps Flevorailway

The Weesp–Lelystad railway, also known as Flevolijn, is a railway in the Netherlands operated by Nederlandse Spoorwegen and owned by ProRail. The line runs from Weesp, North Holland to Lelystad, capital of the neighbouring province of Flevoland. It currently has seven stations, these are (southwest to northeast): Almere Poort, Almere Muziekwijk, Almere Centrum, Almere Parkwijk, Almere Buiten, Almere Oostvaarders and Lelystad Centrum. Almere Strand was closed in 2012 and Lelystad Zuid is due to open before 2025. Work began on the railway line in 1980. Originally, it was planned to run straight through the Oostvaardersplassen. After protests from environmentalists, the transport minister decided that the line was to pass outside this nature area. As a consequence, this detour is, because of its form, now colloquially called the bath tub line. In 2008, it was announced that the line's capacity will be extended to 12 trains per hour in either direction. To achieve this, it will be doubled to four tracks.

2019 (4): Personalised stamps of VVNSM

The association of friends of the railway museum in Utrecht issued three stamps in 2019:

DE-III (1934) + NS 20 Camel ("Kameel") + E-loc 1010

DE-III (1934):
The photograph for this stamp was taken by Peter van der Vlist on August 4, 2009. On the left we see (unmistakably) the 'grande dame' of the streamline stock, the DE3 from 1934. At the time, the train set was taken out of service at NS with the number 163. It was part of the group of last active DE3s that finally had to leave in the early 1960s due to the arrival of the Plan U trainsets series 111-152. With the numbering back to the original number, it would therefore be DE3 33. The train set number 27 was chosen. And that has to do with the fact that motor car 157 was included, with the original number 27, when the train set was transferred to the museum. Next to the 27 is the Nestor, the original HSM 89, the later NS 1010. On November 24, 1964, the locomotive came to the Museum. Next to the Nestor is the 326, the locomotive currently installed on track 1. The Friends contributed to the refurbishment of the 326.

NS 20 Camel ("Kameel"):
The friends of the Railway Museum issued a second personal stamp, again this time in sheets of five with the gold frame. This second edition was issued following the transfer of the Camel to the museum. The image was taken from a photo by Peter van der Vlist showing the Camel at the signal box in the museum.

E-loc 1010:
The friends of the national railway museum issued a third and final personal stamp for 2019, again this time in sheets of five with the gold frame. This third edition was issued with an image of the first NS e-locomotive that came onto the track in 1948 in the 1000 series. One copy of this series has survived and is in the museum: the 1010. The image was taken by Piet Meijer on June 23, 1989 during the manifestation “Trains through time” on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the railways in the Netherlands. This locomotive is unfortunately no longer in service, but came into service in 1949 and was put aside in 1982.

15-12-2019 (6): Personalised stamps of VVNSM

The association of friends of the railway museum in Utrecht also issued a stamp for 2020:

Farewell to DDM-1 on December 15, 2019:
On December 15, 2019, the Dutch Railways said goodbye to its first double-decker, the DDM-1. In a specially organized farewell ride, part of her former work area was driven in collaboration with the NVBS. The ride started in Amersfoort, after which it drove back to Amersfoort via Amsterdam, Alkmaar, Haarlem, Zandvoort, again Haarlem and Amsterdam via Lelystad and Zwolle. The choice was made for 7208 with the pulling and pushing force 1768. The reason for this is that the Bvk "Elephant" of this train composition was already owned by the Railway Museum. However, this was taken back into active service when the rolling stock was reactivated in 2016, so that her career as a museum carriage was postponed by three years. This photo was taken on December 15, 2019 under the imposing roof of Haarlem station by Martijn Bijvoet.

2020

2020 (1): Personalised stamps of VVNSM

The association of friends of the railway museum in Utrecht issued the following stamps in 2020:

e-loco series 1500:
This e-locomotive is of British origin and was taken over by NS from British Rail to reinforce the domestic service. In Britain this locomotive was known as BR 27003 "Diana", put into service in 1954. In the Netherlands these 6 locomotives (1501 to 1506) were put into service in 1970. They practically had a monopoly on the line The Hague CS - Venlo in passenger transport and were taken out of service in 1986. The 1502 and 1505 then went back to England to be included in museum collections there. This issue is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the association of friends of the national railway museum: it was founded in the same year in which the 1500 series entered service at NS. Due to the fact that the 1501 entered service with NS fifty years ago in 2020, the locomotive temporarily found a place in the national Railway Museum. On July 1, the locomotive was delivered by the Fairtrains 1304. The image on the stamp: the 1501 was a guest in the workshop in Tilburg on November 25, 2006. That day the locomotive brought two 1100's of the SGB in Goes to Tilburg on the occasion of the presentation of the book about the series 1100. The photograph was taken by Harry Peters.

SGMm 2133:
In the autumn of 2020, the 2-car train set City Regional Equipment (Stads Gewestelijk Materieel) 2133, launched at the time as the new Sprinter, plan Y, was added to the collection of the national Railway Museum. Before the modification to this equipment, this set entered service as SGM 2023. The image on the stamp shows SGMm 2133 “in the wild”, on August 13, 2018 and therefore still in circulation, in Wijchen. The photographer is Leon Schrijvers.

2020 (4): Personalised stamp with Alstom Hydrogen train

Coradia iLint is the world's first hydrogen-powered train. This zero-emission train emits low levels of noise, with exhaust being only steam and condensed water. The iLint was designed by Alstom teams in Salzgitter (Germany), the centre of excellence for regional trains, and in Tarbes (France), the centre of excellence for traction systems.
Alstom has performed ten days of tests of the Coradia iLint hydrogen fuel cell train on the 65 kilometres of line between Groningen and Leeuwarden in the north of the Netherlands. The tests follow 18 successful months of passenger service on the Buxtehude–Bremervörde–Bremerhaven–Cuxhaven line in Germany, where total of 41 Coradia iLint have already been ordered. The latest tests make the Netherlands the second country in Europe where the train has proven itself a unique emissions-free solution for non-electrified lines. In October 2020, Alstom and the Province of Groningen, local operator Arriva, the Dutch railway infrastructure manager ProRail and the energy company Engie signed a pilot project agreement to test the Coradia iLint, the world’s first passenger train powered by hydrogen fuel cells, in the Netherlands. DEKRA, an independent testing inspection and certification company, has been appointed test leader. This series of tests is being performed at night at up to 140 km/h without passengers. For the purpose of the tests, a mobile filling station has been erected by Engie for refuelling the Coradia iLint with completely green – sustainably produced – hydrogen.

2020 (5): Personalised stamps with NS ICGN 602001, the new 2020 IC in test colours.

The Intercity Nieuwe Generatie (Intercity New Generation), or ICNG is an electric multiple unit trainset planned to be operated by Nederlandse Spoorwegen for high-speed intercity services in the Netherlands and Belgium. It is built by Alstom based on their Coradia Stream platform. The NS began procurement of a new intercity trainset in July 2014. The respondents were Alstom, Siemens, Bombardier and Stadler. In May 2016 NS announced that Alstom had won a contract for around 80 trainsets. At the end of May, the contract was finalised to include a total of 79 trainsets including 49 5-car units, 30 8-car units, and 2 8-car units equipped for operation in both the Netherlands and Belgium. An additional order for 18 8-car units was later placed to operate international intercity services between Amsterdam and Brussels, bringing the total number of Belgium-equipped units to 20. The first train arrived in the Netherlands on the 23rd of May 2020 to begin testing on the Dutch railway network.

2020 (6): Personalised stamp with NS SM 90.

The electric SM'90, "stopping-train" or commuter rolling stock of the 1990s, was short-lived. The SM'90 EMUs (railhopper) ran on the line Zwolle – Emmen. Only nine prototype trainsets were built as the intended successor to Mat '64. Due to engine and airco failing and an increase in the number of passengers, NS chose to buy more DDM coaches. In the early years of their service, the trainsets were ridden with trouble. All nine trainsets have been taken out of service in December 2005 and were demolished.

2021

2021 (1): Personalised stamp with TEE.

Trans Europ Express, DE4 NS1001:
The first stamp of this year in the series that is issued by the Association of Friends of the Railway Museum is a beautiful copy with the TEE train set as the motif. The photo (from the archive of the NVBS Rail Collections Foundation) shows DE4 1001 and was taken by J.A.Bonthuis on June 5, 1974 on the site of the former NS line workshop in Utrecht.
The board of the Friends worked for a long time to buy two carriages of the equipment on Dijksgracht from the TEE Foundation. Ultimately, this did not lead to the desired result. Five carriages were purchased by the Dutch Transport Museum in Nieuw Vennep, which announced that the restoration plans are being worked (February 2021).

In September 2020, the Dutch Railways announced that it would lease two Siemens Vectron locomotives from the German company ELL. The NS wants to use the locomotives for the deployment of the NightJet to Vienna. Now that this international train is still not running, the NS has decided to run the new Vectron locomotives every day in the IC Berlin. These will drive back and forth to the border town of Bad Bentheim where the locomotive is exchanged.

The Vossloh G400B is a B diesel-hydraulic shunting locomotive. The G400B is technically identical to the G322, except for some details like different final drives. It was renamed as G400B to fit in the new numbering scheme used in the 4th generation programme. Vossloh built 6 stock locomotives for leasing, used by different operators. A second batch of 13 locomotives was built for Dutch train maintenance company NedTrain. These locomotives are slightly longer due to the fitting of extra coupling equipment, and are used to shunt trains around their workshops.

In several years there were issues with private company locos:

ACTS 5814 Class 66 + ACTS-VOS ex NS 1255
another ACTS-VOS ex NS 1255 + ACTS 7105
LOCON 201 + LOCON 401 class 66

ACTS Nederland BV was a Dutch railway company. The abbreviation originally comes from Afzet Container Transport System. On February 5, 2011, activities were continued by Husa.

LOCON Benelux B.V. was a Dutch rail freight transporter, established in Zwolle. The company was founded in 2010 by LOCON A.G. (the already existing German branch of the company) and Haetberting B.V. In April 2011, LOCON Benelux B.V. got her railway license for the Netherlands. On April 2, 2011, the first freight train ran under its own license between Venlo and Vlissingen. In May 2012, the company acquired a license to perform private passenger transport in the Netherlands. In August of the same year, the first closed passenger train was operated by LOCON Benelux B.V. and drove from Utrecht to Emmerich. On July 14, 2017, Locon Benelux B.V. was declared bankrupt by the court in Zwolle.

Husa Transportation Railway Service (HTRS) was a Dutch private rail freight carrier, part of investment company Husa Capital Group. The company was founded in 1989 as ACTS for the benefit of the Sales Container Transport System. In March 1998, ACTS started to independently provide train services. This made the company the first competitor in the Netherlands for NS Cargo. In 1999, thirteen locomotives were bought in Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. The Dutch locomotives were from the ex-NS series 1200. This series was saved from demolition by two railway interested parties. NS wanted to demolish all 1200 locomotives immediately, but thanks to the competition law, it was possible to retain a number of 1200s for ACTS. At the time, 76 container carriers were also purchased, with which the first container shuttles were driven for Vos Logistics from the ports of Rotterdam to Leeuwarden and Veendam. In the years that followed, ACTS became the largest private rail freight transporter in the Netherlands.
At the end of 2010, Husa Railway Services became full owner of ACTS and in 2011 the company was renamed Husa Transportation - Railway Services (HTRS). On January 3, 2014, entrepreneur Rob van Gansewinkel announced that he would stop running trains on February 1, 2014. The activities in the Netherlands were dismantled and the contracts transferred to existing companies. The activities in Germany were sold.

Strukton is a construction and rail company involved in the design, financing, construction, management and maintenance of infrastructure and accommodations. Strukton Rail develops, installs and maintains track systems with the aim of making the track optimally available, reliable, safe and measurable. The operating fields of this operating company are rail infrastructure, rail equipment, information systems, data acquisition, data management and consultancy. Strukton Rail had a train workshop in Zutphen. This workshop, located at the IJsselspoorbrug, had become too small for the increasingly larger machines. Strukton Rail and Arriva Nederland built a larger workshop that opened on October 4, 2012. [source: wikipedia]

several years (8): Personalised stamps with NBDS locomotives

The Noord-Brabantsch-Duitsche Spoorweg-Maatschappij (NBDS) was a railway company which provided rail transport between Boxtel in the Netherlands and Wesel in Germany via Uden, Veghel, Gennep, Goch and Xanten. This railway line was known in the Netherlands as "Duits Lijntje" (the German Line). On July 15, 1873, the route from Boxtel to Goch was opened. On July 1, 1878, the second part of the line, the section from Goch to Wesel, was opened. The total length of the line was 92.7 kilometers, of which 52.7 kilometers were on Dutch territory. From Büderich, another 8.2 kilometers of the Köln-Mindener Eisenbahn (railway) was used, part of the line from Venlo via Wesel to Haltern, Münster and Hamburg.

several years (14): Personalised stamps T.E.E.

The first stamp shows T.E.E. on a poster, the other in real life.
Trans Europ Express (TEE) is the name for a former network of luxury domestic and international express trains in Europe. The concept was started in 1957, according to the idea of F.Q. den Hollander (then president of the Dutch Railways). A special surcharge was payable for the use of the trains.
In many countries (especially the DB in West Germany), other networks of long-distance trains were started with the principles of the successful TEE. However, those trains were provided with second-class accommodation, which led to the TEE trains running empty. In addition, TEEs ran in a relationship only once or twice a day while two hourly or even hourly became the standard for Intercity trains. In 1987 the TEE was usually replaced by the EuroCity.
