175 Jaar van / Years of Nederlandse Spoorwegen
Nederlandse Spoorwegen (NS), or the Dutch Railways, can trace its history back to 1839, when the Hollandsche IJzeren Spoorweg-Maatschappij (HSM) began operations. In September 2014, NS celebrated its 175th anniversary during my visit. On the night that I returned to Amstedam from The Hague, a stage had been set up in Stationsplein in preparation for a celebration the following day. Unfortunately, I was set to visit a Medieval castle, so I didn't see or attend the celebration.
