Why didn't they fit more? There is plenty of space left?

It looks like they used the solar panels to apply some sort of pattern (although I'm not sure what it should resemble).

It has to do with the shadows of the NN-building I believe! And the added weight!

Any chance of them building 2 or 3 tall buildings on the north side of the station?

No, this is a honest question. The vicinity of major stations are great places for high-rises (I'm not talking some 300m-high building). Today, the area north entrance is dominated by low-houses and some worn-down short buildings. They could well demolish some 2 blocks for a small cluster of 100-150m buildings.

The North facade of the railway station was deliberately kept low to preserve the image and atmosphere of the neighborhood behind it. They're not now going to destroy those houses and build skyscrapers.

Particularly not since there is puh-lenty of space for skyscrapers in the city center. Anywhere. Literally. Pick an acre.

They measured the where there was on average the most sunlight on on the roof and thats how they got this pattern.

What is the point of converting sunlight to electricity and than back to light at the exact same time and exact same location?

Who knows, maybe after AB fixes the trains a private operator leases them on the cheap to compete with with international services again

You need to let go of this fantasy where these trains are in any way usable.

No private operator can afford unreliable trains. The only company that might conceivably be interested is Trenitalia. They seem to have no issue with single digit availability percentages...

The Amsterdam - Utrecht - Arnhem line is not a high speed railway, it's only relevance is that ICE trains to Frankfurt run over that line.

Neither is Antwerp-Brussels, but it is on there as high speed trains run on that track.

Not sure that's high speed, but the point still stands: there are sections on that map that are not high speed, but because there are high speed trains running on them, as part of a route that includes actual high speed running, the lines are shown, no matter how low the speed.

The actual high speed rail sections are clearly marked, which is what the guy wanted to know.

It's not faster than the historic line and will be really useful only once the
"Mechelen by-pass" will be available.
