Former railway station in Nieuwveen. Somewhat surprisingly it was only active as such for a couple of decades, from 1915 to 1936.

Plans are to turn it into an apartment building.

TARDIS garden shed (I'm assuming?).

Found a new neighborhood to explore today, and there's lots of goodies to see everywhere!

You'll have to fill me in on the Jeff story, because I'd like to know if Jeff was with me on my comment or against.
Somebody looks pissed, that silly emoji says troll when I pass my cursor over it.
I'm not an emoji guy.
Thanks much,

I use it as a what you see is what you get, the troll is pissed, Jeff is not on here anymore, that is a big loss for us all.

Pretty sure he would agree with you.

Pretty sure that Cimarron needs a significant downgrade of some sort to allow it to be that close to HQ!
