The tracks until the crossing with the road would be used by passenger trains to the Panbos recreational area, and freighttrains could continue a little further. That way, there would be a good reason for the existance of a railway which in reality would not be build just for a recreational area. The recreational area station would just be a convient second use for a freight connecion. A second use, later to become the only use, and only reason for the line to remain existing.
I had also already started building that industrial area (about 200m further), with a few sidings and buildings, but I was not very happy with the result, so I broke it down again. But I left that little piece there, as a bit of history of the idea. I am not planning to make it, but a pre-Rijndam1985 would include a freightyard beyond this point (and no overhead wires on the railway at all).
