Zoetermeer Stadslijn

A Randstadrail Tram on line 3

Zoetermeer Stadslijn is a light-rail system in the Netherlands, between The Hague and Zoetermeer.

HistoryEdit

Originally, the line was managed by the Dutch Railways (NS). Since June 2006, it has served as a light-rail line, using trams. The light-rail connection, combined with The Hague-Rotterdam line, is called the RandstadRail.

After the Oosterheem neighbourhood was built in Zoetermeer, an extra track was added. It does not take the round line, unlike the other routes, but splits between Seghweart and Leidsewallen stations.[citation needed]

LinesEdit

Since the extra Oosterheem line was added, two lines reach the Zoetermeer Stadslijn and are called line 3 and line 4. Line 3 uses the older track, and line 4, or the Oosterheem line, takes the newer track.

Line 3Edit

Line 3 takes the old track and makes a lap. At Centrum West, it turns and circles back over the whole track to Den Haag Centraal Station.

RouteEdit

The route starts at Den Haag and goes through Voorburg and Leidschendam. Then, it enters Zoetermeer at station Voorweg Laag. It has the following stops:

At the end of the route, the vehicle turns around and drives the route back to Den Haag.

Line 4Edit

Line 4 takes the same route as line 3 until Seghwaert, where it splits and goes into the Oosterheem neighbourhood.

RouteEdit

The route starts at Den Haag and goes through Voorburg and Leidschendam. Then, it enters Zoetermeer at Voorweg Laag, just like line 3. It has the following stations:

That is the end of the track.
