Snapshot: train kisses the buffers in Dordrecht

Posted in Posts by James Benedict Brown on 8 June, 2008

Seen through the window of my train from Brussels to The Hague yesterday morning – a local train operated by Arriva (Nederlands Spoorwegen has begun to privatise parts of its network) failed to stop in time at one of Dordrecht station’s bay platforms, mounting the buffers and concrete platform. Nine passengers, the driver and conductor were all uninjured.
