More information

Background information:
This type of station, as far as known, was only built in the town Gorinchem, around 1960. Previously, there was another building which has been replaced for this structure that fully breathes the 60th. In the middle of the building is a waiting room/hall with large windows on both long sides .On the left and right of it are various service areas such as the kitchen of a snack corner and office space to support the counter. The building, however repainted, is still in use as a station building.

Architectural details:
The station was built of half-brick masonry walls, but also contains large glass fronts. These are, for structural reasons, mainly made with steel frames. The main roof consists of many angular shapes. This roof is finished with bitumen roofing. It seems to “float” because the roof is supported by glass walls. The flat roofs on both ends of the building are covered with a layer of gravel, to protect the underlying layer of bitumen. The scale model has five separate light compartments. And features a "tiled" floor in the main hall.
