The kids and I took the Sprinter from Boxtel to Eindhoven. It’s only three stops – Best, Strijp-S and then Central Station. These new Dutch trains are amazing! Not only are they on time, they are super clean and modern! While not cheap, at a total price of €17 round trip for all 3, they are well-maintained. Nils has a train card which gives major reductions but he needs to be with us. (I think)
In our 2nd class carriage, there were CCTV cameras, electricity plugs and USB plugs and are toilets (super clean) ones too! Both kids suddenly had to go, just to use it while moving.
I think many countries can learn from these guys!
