Delft railway station

Delft is a railway station in Delft, Netherlands, located on the railway line between The Hague and Rotterdam. The first train passed the railway station on 31 May 1847. A few days later, on 3 June, the railway station opened its doors. It was initially located on the Houttuinen. Because of an increase in the number of passengers and goods, a new railway station had to be opened in 1885, just to the south of the previous station. This building was designed by Christiaan Posthumus Meyjes sr. Currently a new station is being constructed underground.
