23-05-1932: ANVV stamps (Tourist Organization).

The Moerdijk Railway Bridge near Rotterdam spans the "Hollandsch Diep" (The estuary of the rivers Maas and Waal). It was built in 1872. After the Second World War it was replaced by a modern steel construction. The other bridge you see on the stamp is the drawbridge of Schipluiden, which is not a railway bridge of course. The stamps in these series are surcharged for the benefit of the Dutch Tourist Organisation (A.N.V.V.).

The first Dutch steam locomotive ran from Haarlem to Amsterdam on 20th September 1839. Its name was De Snelheid (The Speed).

They were British made. A replica is now on show at the Utrecht railway museum. The other stamp shows a contemporary electric motor unit (EMU). It is the first streamlined EMU of 1936 design. These units were in service until 1968. This was an emission to commemorate 100 years of railways in The Netherlands.

26-02-1975: Amsterdam underground lines on Amsterdam Anniversary stamps.


When the new Amsterdam metro system had to be built, several Amsterdam buildings would have to disappear. This was the cause of several protest demonstrations which ended up in riots. The first stamp shows the area where the then new Amsterdam underground railway system was to be built. This stamp commemorates the fact that Amsterdam was founded 700 years ago. The second stamp represents the underground railway lines on the map of Amsterdam in its design stage. The building in this stamp is the then 300 years old Portuguese synagogue.

In 1903 a bill was passed which forbade civil servants and workers in public services, among others railway personnel, to strike at all times. These so-called Strangling Laws were so hated by the workers, that they proclaimed a strike among railway workers.

Thousands were killed during the construction, both of exhaustion and of cruelty from the part of the Japanese. 15 August 1945 is the date that "Indonesia" was liberated.

25-11-2004: personalised (official) December (Christmas) stamp


In this case it is the tab that shows a railway related subject, not the stamp itself. In the tab you can see the steam locomotive from the Harry Potter books. The locomotive headed Hogwarts Express, which carried wizard pupils from London's Kings Cross railway station platform 9½ to Hogsmeade, where Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is situated. The steam engine used in the film adaptations is the GWR 4900 Class 5972 Olton Hall, but it was not the first real locomotive to be disguised as the Hogwarts Express. To promote the books, the Southern Railway locomotive Taw Valley was repainted and renamed temporarily, but was rejected as looking ‘too modern’ for the film.

14-10-2005: Dutch trains


Set of four stamps showing typically Dutch trains, issued in a sheet of 10, on the occasion of the reopening of the Utrecht Railway Museum which was renovated.
Above left you see the Blue Angel. It got its name from the famous movie "Der Blaue Engel" from 1929 featuring Marlène Dietrich. This train is now to be seen in the Utrecht railway museum. Its official name is DE 41 and it was introduced in 1953. It could contain 73 passengers.
Above right you see steam locomotive 3737. It ran services till 1957. One still survives and is operational. It sometimes carries out special rides.
On the left again you see an Intercity Express train. It is a German ICE train which can reach speeds up to 330 kilometers per hour on special high speed track, not available in Holland at the moment these stamps were issued.
Last but not least you see the Front Runner (Koploper), which is in use since 1977. The train driver is high above the passenger compartment, which makes it possible to couple carriages without obstructing the way through to the next carriage. It was also the first train in which benches were not only placed opposite each other but behind each other as well.

In a sheet of 10 showing Dutch products we encounter one stamp with a railway bridge, the so-called Hef (vertical lift-bridge) near Rotterdam. The official name is King's harbour bridge (Koningshavenbrug). The bridge was designed by P. Joosting and operational since 31 October 1927. Before that time the bridge was a swivel-bridge. The raised bridge is visible in the background on the right. Most of the time this bridge was raised to allow ships to pass. It is no longer in use.

Several railway related elements play a part in this sheet. First of all the fact that Roosendaal is an important junction of railway lines and the gateway to the countries south of The Netherlands.



Furthermore you can find Roosendaal station in this sheet, at least the conspicuous window design:

At first sight this sheet doesn't contain any railway related images at all, but appearances are deceptive. There is one item connected with railways: the Burgundian duo.



They represent the two delegates who went to The Hague to plead for a railway station in Oosterhout. As the story goes they chose to go and have a good meal first. This caused them to be late for the meeting. In the meantime it had been decided that the railway station would be built in a neighbouring village called Rijen. This must have been in 1862 or thereabouts, as the line Breda - Tilburg opened in 1863. The Rijen sation is still operational.

22-08-2011: One hundred years "Heemschut"


Heemschut is a sort of National Trust that protects our cultural heritage. It is a private association though. One of the buildings that was protected from demolition in 1972 is the Amsterdam "Noord-Zuid-Hollands koffiehuis", a café in Station Square by architect J.H.W. Leliman, one of the founders of "Heemschut". It was rebuilt in 1980 in front of Amsterdam Central Station, which is in the background. The café is in the fourth and ninth stamps in the sheet.
Furthermore there is the St.-Servaas bridge in Maastricht in the fifth stamp. This bridge carried a streetcar until 1914.

01-09-2011: "Green mail"


These stamps originate from a sheet of 10 stamps for national use. All ten stamps have an environmental subject, two of which are related with the train. The stamp on top shows a suitcase with the text: "travel consciously, let the environment relax" (in Dutch: Bewust reizen. Laat het milieu ontspannen). And of course we all know that taking the train is a very environment-friendly way of travelling.
The other stamp shows a bus, but the text also applies to rail travel: "Go forward fast with electric transport" (in Dutch: Snel vooruit met elektrisch vervoer). Most railway lines in The Netherlands are electrified, so this text is also appropriate for the railways.

18-06-2012: The Netherlands in the Bos Atlas


The Bos Atlas was the first atlas for educational purposes in The Netherlands and it still exists. The atlas is published by Wolters-Noordhoff Publishers in Groningen. Simultaneously with the issue of the stamp sheet the 54th edition of the atlas appeared. The first edition was made by the Groningen headmaster P.R.Bos and appeared in 1877. The top left stamp shows the first edition and some railway lines are on it. In fact several stamps show railway lines. That is why this sheet is mentioned here.

28-01-2013: 125th anniversary of ARCADIS (and KNHM)


Arcadis designed the ecoduct (ecological viaduct) at Zanderij Crailoo near Hilversum. The ecoduct measures 800 metres and is one of the longest in its kind. It spans four obstacles, among which a very busy provincial throughroad and a railway line. This bridge connects two natural areas and it restored the ecological connection between them. The stamp showing a train which passes under the ecoduct can be found in the upper right hand cormer.

Another highlight of Arcadis' achievements is Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA railway station. 60,000 passengers get in and out at this station daily. They enjoy the abundant daylight in the open spaces between the four viaducts. The 29 metres high glass roof seems to float on steel columns. The woodclad roof parts provide this Arcadis designed "Bijlmer cathedral" with a warm atmosphere. The stamp showing the station can be found in the lower left hand corner.

09-09-2013: The Peace Palace in The Hague is 100 years old


The Peace Palace (Dutch: Vredespaleis) in The Hague is the seat of international law because it houses the International Court of Justice. The Palace officially opened on August 28, 1913, and was built for the Permanent Court of Arbitration, created to end war as stated in a treaty at the 1899 Hague Peace Conference. Andrew Dickson White, whose efforts were instrumental in creating this court wrote to his friend Andrew Carnegie, who eventually provided 1.5 million dollars to build the Peace Palace.
In the Great Hall there are several stained glass windows, one of which is called Industria. This window contains the image of a steam locomotive. The window was designed by Herman Rosse (1887 – 1965) and manufactured by J.W. Gips.

30-03-2015: Sheet showing Dutch bridges


The sheet shows ten Dutch bridges, two of which are railway bridges.
In the top left hand corner you can see the Moerdijk railway bridges. There are two beside each other. The one conspicuously in the foreground is the so-called HSL-bridge (HSL hogesnelheidslijn = HST high speed train). The one in the background is the old Moerdijk railway bridge.

The three Moerdijkbridges connect the island of Dordrecht in the province of South-Holland with the province of North-Brabant across the Hollandsch Diep waterway. From west to east thre are a road bridge, the two-rail HSL-South bridge, and a two-rail bridge for the line Dordrecht - Lage Zwaluwe.
The old railway bridge, which is still in use, was built at the end of the 19th century and was opened in January 1871. In the fifties of the 20th century it was replaced by a newer, wider, version.
The conctruction of the HSL-South line made it necessary to build a third Moerdijk bridge. Construction of this "cat's back" was started in 2000 by Benthem Crouwel Architects.
The first HST crossed this bridge at 300 kilometres an hour during a test run in 2006.

The second railway bridge is shown in the bottom left hand corner. It is the so-called Hanzeboog (Hanze Bow). It spans the river IJsseland is part of the line Utrecht - Kampen en Lelystad - Zwolle line which was opened in December 2012. This new bridge is high enough for ships to pass under it, so there are no movable parts in this bridge. It is a kilometre in length and rests on 18 concrete pillars. The design is by Quist Wintermans Architects. The bridge was used for the first time in the direction of Amersfoort-Zwolle during the Easter weekend of 2011 and in the direction of Zwolle-Amersfoort during the Pentecost weekend of the same year.

The bottom stamp is not about the bridge, but about the backgroud, which shows Amsterdam Central Railway Station.

28-04-2015: Naardermeer


Naardermeer was the first area of natural beauty that was bought by the foundation for Natural monuments (Dutch: Natuurmonumenten) in 1906 and thus became the first nature reserve in the Netherlands. Part of a sheet of 10 are two stamps with a railway related subject.
In 1874 the Eastern Railway (Oosterspoorweg) between Amsterdam and Amersfoort was realised. This railway line crosses the Naardermeer lake from west to east. In 1987 the Flevolijn came into use. This line runs along the northern border of the area. The connection between Oosterspoorweg and Flevolijn was constructed with dive-unders instead of fly-overs.
The train you see here is a so-called Koploper, Plan Z.

14-09-2015: The Borderless Netherlands: USA connection


As New York used to be a Dutch city called New Amsterdam before it was "sold" to the English. New Amsterdam (Dutch: Nieuw-Amsterdam) was a 17th-century Dutch settlement established at the southern tip of Manhattan Island, which served as the seat of the colonial government in New Netherland territory. The trading post became a settlement outside of Fort Amsterdam on Manhattan Island in the New Netherland in 1614. Situated on the strategic, fortifiable southern tip of the island of Manhattan, the fort was meant to defend the Dutch West India Company's fur trade operations in the North River (Hudson River). It became a provincial extension of the Dutch Republic as of 1624 and was designated the capital of the province in 1625.
New Amsterdam was renamed New York on September 8, 1664, in honor of the then Duke of York (later James II of England), in whose name the English had captured it. In 1667 the Dutch gave up their claim to the town and the rest of the colony, in exchange for control of the Spice Islands.
In 1667 the Treaty of Breda ended the conflict. The Dutch did not press their claims on New Netherland. In return, they were granted the tiny Island of Run in North Maluku, rich in nutmegs, and a guarantee for their de facto possession of Suriname, captured by them that year.
(source: Wikipedia)

For more than half a century Dutch was the lingua franca of New Amsterdam and New Netherlands. A number of names still remind us of the Dutch presence in New York: Harlem (Haarlem), Brooklyn (Breukelen), Wall Street (Walstraat). The names Haarlem & Breukelen (see stamp 1) are fictitious roadsigns for the New York metro and refer to Harlem and Brooklyn.
The second stamp shows The Hague town hall with visible catenary for the streetcars. This town hall was designed by American architect Richard Meier.
The New York park High Line (2,3 kms long) is built on the elevated railway of Manhattan which is no longer in use. (stamp 3).
