Here is out photoblog of the RET Metro Celebrating 50 Years in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. From February 9th to 13th 2018 you could visit the first ever metro carriage in Rotterdam, Netherlands. This Dutch metro first opened in 1968 by princess Beatrix en prince Claus. The length of the metro line in 1968 was only 5.9km long, making it the shortest in the world at the time. These days the Rotterdam metro lines are more than 100km long.
RET Metro Celebrating 50 Years
The RET had organised a special metro pop-up museum to visit at Blaak station, so we couldn’t resist to visit! Here are some of the photos we took during our visit of the RET Metro Celebrating 50 Years in Rotterdam.
We can say it was pretty special to visit the open public event, as you weer able to go onboard the metro and explore how it was. You could sit in the old seats and even check out where the driver would have sat during the transporation. There were lots of buttons but it also looked pretty simple to understand. What I loved the most was the old diagrams and metro plans as well as the old photos that it shared too. A lovely experience provided by the RET Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
Did you visit too? We’d love to hear what you thought!
