railway stations and railway tracks

This dataset contains point shapefiles from different years. The points represent train stations that were in active service for passenger transport in the calendar year mentioned. Stations that are only used for events (like some stations near soccer stadiums) are not included in the dataset.

Every dataset contains the officle abbreviation of the station (STATIONABB), the name of the station (NAME), the PROVINCE where the stations lies in and whether it was an Intercitystation in the respective year (IC_2015 = 1). The column RANDST_RL tells you whether the train station is part of Randstadrail ('1') or not ('0').

The basic source for the station attribute data and their locations is Open Street Map (OSM). Since, the OSM-station set is not complete, SPINlab has made it complete. Then, the locations were snapped to combine nicely with the railway track-shapefile.

Both the railway stations shapefiles and the railway track shapefile have subsequently been manually edited/fixed were necessary, after which one final visual inspection has taken place. Should you nevertheless encounter any discrepancies, please contact Jasper Dekkers from SPINlab | VU Amsterdam.
