Harlingen, Terschelling

Today I'm taking a trip to the island of Terschelling, one of the West Frisian islands.
 First I'm taking a train from Amsterdam Zuid to Zwolle, where I'm changing for a train to Leeuwarden, and at last another change to Harlingen where the harbour is.
 NS application is very convenient, you can view real time schedule, track numbers, and prices.
The information about each train is excellent, providing even a picture of the train.
 Amsterdam Zuid station is strategically located nearby Zuidas business area. Here is Viñoly tower that was completed in 2005 and where Google Amsterdam has its offices among others.
 The Rock tower
 Amsterdam Zuid is a stop for both long distance Intercity services as well as commuter Sprinter services. Here is a Sprinter train to Den Haag Centraal. The station has also access to Amsterdam metro.

 Passing by nature reserve of Oostvaardersplassen
 NS DM 90 for service Zwolle-Kampen
 Zwolle station
 Arriva Vechdallinjen for service Zwolle-Emmen. The train is a Stadler GTW (Spurt) EMU.
 I have arrived to the last stop with NS train (to the right) - Leeuwarden. My next train (to the left) is an Arriva service to Harlingen Haven.
NS application is providing similar information for Arriva train.

 Last stop at Harlingen Haven
 Rederij Doeksen is the ferry company providing services to Terschelling and Vlieland islands. Here is a Noord Nederland cargo ferry.
 Now I'm switching for a while from train photos to boat photos.

The route to Terschelling is a winding one. The trip takes about 2 hours.
 The traffic is very heavy on this route
