Strien (2000-2003)

Henk Wust

In September 2000 Henk Wust exhibited his model of the Rotterdam Steam Tram line through his home village of Strijen and promptly won the 'best in show' award. During the winter, Henk has worked on an extension which shows the actual steam tram station (little more than a loop, a platform and a siding to the local coal merchant) and a freelance interpretation of a typical village in that part of Holland. Due to the freelance addition, he renamed the station Strien which of course means 'Strijen' in the local dialect. Strien appeared at Expo-NG, Swanley, on 25 October 2003.
