My name is Julian Self (a.k.a. Fles) and I am a CAD Signalling Designer with 15 years of experience in the UK rail industry. Early in 2004 the rail market back home went into a bit of a decline, so when I was offered the opportunity to come and work for Grontmij Maunsell in the Netherlands, I leapt at it like a long-haired speccy rat. This is a record of my experiences in the land which I initially considered a kind of Atlantis in reverse, being in many ways a paradise which rose out of the sea.
