Let's use this thread to further discuss the steamtrainspotting possibilities between Rotterdam and Gouda on oktober 2

Here's the link to the SSN website with all the details: https://www.stoomstichting.nl/evenement/stoomtreindagen/


Participants

- Dopol
- @Jetsplace (& Marcel)
- pegelli (trainspotting along the line only)

Just post below if you want to join or any other thoughts/suggestions for this gathering.

Gouda is home so I like to join as well.
There is a new parkinggarage next to the station - but if it is a small group we could also gather at my house and Marcel could be taxidriver or we share rides and only one or two cars need to be parked and cost can be shared. Parking in Gouda is rather expensive. Or join the train.. I don't know what is custom on those things.

I just realised we have a person doing his first exhibition in our "Kunsthuis" that weekend so I don't want to be too long from home saturday (his first day), especially when I will already be away the whole next day to our meeting in Dordrecht.

So if the weather is nice I might drive to Rotterdam and do a little train spotting at two or three places along the line (tweede tochtweg, spoorweglaan, viaduct Gouwekanaal) but won't go to the depot and make the trip to/from Gouda by train.

Looking at the website I see that you can also buy tickets in Gouda and take one of the steam trains to the SSN depot so gathering at Jet's home might indeed be a good option for the people who want to do more than just spotting along the line.

I'd love to come - but i'm too scared to join due to the masking mandates that are lifted.

I'm not going to join any Dyxum (or other gatherings) until the WHO-norm of 75/100000 is reached (i receive in fact some kind of immunity depressing medicine - and to make things worse our medicine can be used to treat corona-patients - we do fear shortages...).

I've been watching the evolution of the numbers - and it's not going down fast enough.

But those steam trains run every year isn't it?

I'm used to make these sarcrifices, it takes a lot more to get me down (in fact the more stringent the rules where, the better i feel, i'm a bit of a weirdo - isn't it?).

Everything looked good - until that nasty delta-variant came along - we'll have to cope with the fact that all viruses evolve. The scientific-research results (i've seen on the protection numbers of the vaccines) aren't looking that bad though for the general public - and things may change when we receive our third shot - i'm within that group in Belgium that 'll receive that dose soon...

From that moment on (+2 weeks) - i'll have more freedom!

I'm not coming, I have "home duty". Only ones subscribed are Jet and Domien but I don't know if they agreed anything further.
