More information

Background information:
Already in 1885 there was a railroad station in Giessendam at the Betuwe line. In 1957 it was named Hardinxveld-Giessendam. In 1958 a new, modern station was built. This new building has functioned until 2004. Train tickets are bought since then at the ticket machine. The building was saved from demolition in 2007, as a catering establishment entrepreneur came in. The Markenburg model is based entirely on this relatively modern building.

Architectural details:
The for the '50s very modern concrete frame consists of 9 identical trusses. These trusses are largely remained in the sight. The facade space between the frames is mainly provided with glass. If there is no glass, doors are present or stretcher (light) gray masonry. The flat roof, which is coated on the underside with dark brown planks, is pierced at two places by a solid chimney. These chimneys are, in addition to the stone mosaic plinths and concrete frame, architectural elements to distinguish the building from the traditional architecture, used before the '60s.
