Kampen Station

The Kamperlijntje is a railway in the Netherlands, between Zwolle and Kampen, and is part of the Utrecht–Kampen railway (Centraalspoorweg). The 12 km long section now has only two stations: Zwolle and Kampen. The journey between the two stations takes about ten minutes. The line is operated by the Nederlandse Spoorwegen (with DMUs of type Buffel) and is funded in part by the province of Overijssel and the municipalities of Zwolle and Kampen. Attempts to get funding for a conversion of the line to light-rail have so far failed, at present NS is maintaining a service until it is decided what is to be done with the line.
