Being Shown The Door…

It’s my very last post from Hollandspoor train Station’s stunning Queen’s/King’s waiting room, which opened to the public especially for “Monumentendag” 2019.

This gives visitors a small glimpse at what lay behind the beautiful doors on the platform.

The WaitingRoom is usually closed, to protect and preserve the stunning handmade interior.

Now I am no longer sure when this historic site could be opened again, at least in 2020, unless a vaccine for the coronavirus can be found.

These beautiful wood panels, stair handles are not made for scrubbing tens-of-times a day, nor the fabric, handmade wallpapers and other items if the public don’t keep their paws where they should.

It’s been a privileged to have been shown around here.

I’m only disappointed that the tour is only given in Dutch, which more or less excludes non-Dutch visitors.

This additional exit door in the irregularly shaped baggage room was not one to which we were allowed entrance but it’s beautiful just the same.

It’s probably fitting that a door marks my final post here, my blog exits here to another topic, hopefully one that you enjoy as much as these ones.
