Meppel is a railway station in Meppel, Netherlands. The station opened on 1 October 1867 and is on the Arnhem–Leeuwarden railway and Meppel–Groningen railway. Train services are operated by Nederlandse Spoorwegen.

History

The building was constructed in 1867 according to a standardised layout by the State Railways, namely the revised "third class".[1] The classical design probably comes from Karel Hendrik van Brederode,[2] who also designed several other models for the State Railways.

Meppel station was renovated in 1982, which mainly involved the station's interior. It became a national heritage site on 28 January 1998.[2]
