This has just come in from a correspondent in Holland:
An 18 year old cellist Dana de Vries from Franeker, was told yesterday to leave the train because she didn’t have a ticket for her instrument.
This happened in a train to Groningen. Normally it is no problem to take your cello into public transport, and Dana never had this before. She was on her way to Paris. She was told that her cello took up a seat and therefore she had to buy a ticket.
When she refused, she was ordered to leave the train.
