NS between 1975 and 1985 passenger

When I started photographing railway ans tramway matters in 1974 most trains already were painted yellow. After the future vision “Spoorslags ’70” NS worked out also a new corporate image. Yellow and a new logo were adopted and the inland “40 Steden Tempo Trein” was introduced. Every hour an Intercity between the 40 most important stations. Connections granted on a number of crossing platforms. It worked out well. Over the years the number of passengers grew and grew. They even more than doubled.
Today such a plan would be renewing and refreshing again. Todays NS-Reizigers (passengers) have become a slow acting and inside looking company who completely forgot what service is. The best performance they would like to have seems to be running empty trains exactly on time.
