Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The railway station of Hillegom in the Netherlands is located on the railway line between Haarlem and Leiden. The first railway station in the town was opened in 1891, closed in 1898 and torn down in 1900. A second railway station was opened on a different location in 1898, when the first was closed. It was designed by the architect D.A.N. Margadant. The freight tracks on the railway station were used to transport flowers from the nearby fields to i.a. the flower auction in Aalsmeer. During World War II, these tracks were used by the Germans, making it a prominent target for allied bombings. The passenger railway station was closed as a result of this on September 17, 1944. The freight tracks remained in use until the 1980s.show more
