Another view on the platforms of Eindhoven Beukenlaan, looking westwards towards Tilburg and Breda.This station was opened on 26/09/1971 as a suburban type station called "Sextant" , because the small (now closed) ticket counter had a hexagonal shape.It was also opened to give Philips employees direct access to the nearby located Philips light bulb factory , now in use as a multifunctional centre.

A common sight on many Dutch stations is this ticket cancelling machine.Like in France and some other European countries , Dutch tickets have to be cancelled by this machine in order to be valid.

This signal is used to give the train driver the depature order , but also serves as a repeater : when it's lit the next signal shows an "approach" or "clear" aspect , when it's dark the next signal shows a "stop" aspect.Whereas in other countries the departure signal is only lit when the actual departure order is given , in the Netherlands the departure signal is also lit when no train is arriving and thus minimizes the actual function as a departure signal.

This signal is used to give the train driver the depature order , but also serves as a repeater : when it's lit the next signal shows an "approach" or "clear" aspect , when it's dark the next signal shows a "stop" aspect.On this picture the signal is switched dark because no trains will stop at this platform during the weekend.
