Dutch railways removing yellow timetable boards

From Dutch News.

The giant yellow timetable signboards have been a hallmark of Dutch rail stations for ages. Nowadays, with so many passengers checking the up-to-the-minute digital signs or using online apps for trip planning, the yellow timetables have been deemed expendable and most will start disappearing beginning in April 2014.

Admittedly, it could be difficult for a visitor (me) to figure out which part of the table to look at but even when I thought I knew where I needed to be to catch the proper train, I would still check the yellow boards. Now I’ll need to look for the digital signs.

    I was relieved to read that at least one will be left at each station. I’d be lost otherwise! I prefer not to use my phone online while abroad so as to not get stung with the charges. So I’m left using the old methods. 🙂
