The kids and I took one of the NEW Sprinters from Boxtel to Eindhoven. It’s only three stops – Best, Strijp-S and then Central Station but it was fun for the kids. These new Dutch trains are amazing! Not only was it on time, but it was wicked clean and modern! While not cheap, at a total price of €17 round trip for all 3 of us, it was super modern. N 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, wifi and toilets (super clean) ones too! Both kids suddenly had to go, just to use it while moving – obviously this made me happy.
I think many countries can learn from these guys! The MBTA in Boston ha ha 🙂
