Almere Strand railway station

Almere Strand (English: Almere Beach) was a railway station in Almere, Netherlands. It was located on the Weesp-Lelystad railway (Flevolijn) between the Weesp and Almere Muziekwijk stations. Almere Strand Station was served only during the Libelle Zomerweek and during events at the nearby beach.[1][2] Trains at this station were operated by Nederlandse Spoorwegen.

The station, which had two platforms with no facilities, was first opened on 1 May 1996 before being closed on 1 July 1996. It remained closed until 1 June 1999, when it reopened.[3] It was closed permanently in October 2012, shortly before Almere Poort railway station opened.
