Hey! Today I got a new, very busy suggestion. Let me know what you think! The route My suggestion is the route from The Hague to Amsterdam. It goes from The Hague Central or The Hague HS (They are basically next to each other, but one (Central) is a terminal station like München Hauptbahnhof and the other one (HS) is a through-station.) to Amsterdam-Zuid or Amsterdam Central. Halfway to Amsterdam (just after Leiden Station), the line splits up in two different lines: One going to Amsterdam-Zuid over Schiphol and the other one going to Amsterdam Central over Haarlem: The Timetable This is gonna be a very busy timetable with a lot of commuter services and no freight trains. Intercity services: The Hague HS/Central - Amsterdam-Zuid: every 15 minutes The Hague HS/Central - Amsterdam Central: every 15 minutes Stopping services: The Hague Central - Amsterdam Central (over Schiphol): every 30 minutes The Hague Central - Haarlem: every 30 minutes Hoofddorp - Amsterdam Central: every 30 minutes (the blue line) Hoofddorp - Amsterdam-Zuid: every 15 minutes Haarlem - Amsterdam Central: every 15 minutes Rolling stock For the Intercities, I recommend using the VIRM-M or the "Koploper": VIRM-M: recently modernised and most used intercity Koploper: oldest but most loved intercity train (could also function as a DLC) For the stopping services, I recommend using the SNG or the SLT. The SGM could function as a DLC. SNG: SLT: SGM: Oldest stopping service trains in the Netherlands, rarely used nowadays. A perfect DLC. Signals For a pretty extensive guide on Dutch railway signals, I would recommend to visit this Wikipedia site "https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spoorwegsein". Translate the Dutch page to your own language with google translate, as the Dutch page is the most detailed. This site is even more detailed: "https://www.dutchrail.eu/spoorwegen/nederland/seinenboek?showall=1". In general, Dutch signals are very easy. Most common are green, flashing green (drive with the shown speed), yellow, yellow with a number (brake until your drive the shown speed) and red. Simple right? Safety systems The main safety system of the route is called ATB-EG. (ATB = automatic train influence, EG = first generation) Link to the Wikipedia site: "https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/ATB_Eerste_Generatie". If you encounter for example a yellow signal, you acknowledge that signal by braking. Easy! Besides the ATB, Dutch trains also have the "dead mans button", like SIFA in Germany. Conclusion All in All, the route is 100 kilometres long, which may be a bit on the long side. Fortunately, the landscaping is very easy, as it is just flat flat flat. Nevertheless, the route is still very scenic and special in it's own way. Besides the scenery, there will be around 44 services departing every hour. Because of this, the map will never feel empty and always alive! But, if DTG still thinks the route is too long, which is understandable, and want to scrap a part of it, these are the best options: - scrap the part from The Hague to Leiden Central ---> result: 86 km. (preserving the number of services, but the journey times are being reduced by ~15 min.) - scrap the part from Leiden Central to Amsterdam Zuid ---> result: 67 km. (too short + less services) - scrap the part from Leiden Central to Amsterdam Central --> result: 57 km (too short + less services) Which part would you scrap?
