My wife and I are in Amsterdam for a few days for a conference. We arrived around noon Saturday and we're leaving Thursday morning. We've been having a great time. We took a train from the airport to Centraal Station, not far from our hotel. Nice. There is a great system of public transportation here, as one would expect in Europe, and we have used the tram several times. I like it a lot - very quiet and smooth.
The trains are constantly going in and out of the station. There seem to be several different companies' trains, from the blue and yellow to something called a Sprinter to the ICE train. Railfanning would be ridiculously easy here.
Here are a couple of videos I took from the 6th floor of the hotel. Sorry for the lack of sound - I was using the cheap Fuji. I also apologize for the window glare. If I have time, I'll try to get outside tomorrow for a few minutes.
