(3) Simon Cresswell comments: I have called this location Maasvlatke reception sidings. Mike Ball's Atlas shows the line splitting into three. we branched off onto the right hand line, but stopped in sidings around the point were the second branch went off to a huge coal loading facility which we could see on our right.
(4) Tour terminated due to late running - was due to run back via Delft to Deen Haag HS.
