Ticket To Ride: Railfreight In Holland - 2 Film Poster


The second in this professional series starts at the Amazon Quay at Rotterdam Maasvlakte where Brazilian iron ore is unloaded by mighty cranes, and then loaded to barge or train to journey into Belgium or Germany. The journey continues along the main routes to Germany, observing the entry points at Venlo and Arnhem before visiting Born to collect some air miles with the Short Lines container shuttle driver. Not far away there are DSM wagonload chemicals and the old DAF plant now owned by Mitsubishi. Also featured is the coastal CORUS plant and the port of Amsterdam which shifts large quantities of coal to the Ruhr. The journey heads north to see the ACTS shuttles at work at Onnen and Leeuwarden, then East to Delfzijl to see the chlorine trains, and other activity at the Nobel Chemie Park. Finally to Coevorden where RAILION, ACTS and the Bentheimer Eisenbahn come together to feed Europe's pets. All this, plus the Betuweroute to Germany and the competing Iron Rhine make this film compulsive viewing for rail fans or transport professionals.
