I've scoured the posts here and found a lot of very helpful train ticket information, both general and specific, but thought if I asked about my exact situation, one of you kind experts would be able to help.
This is our train itinerary for our upcoming trip and I'm wondering what tickets we should get, if I can get all of them in advance online, and through what agency or agencies. I'm thinking that the Go Pass 1 might be part of this for my son, but don't know if/how to combine that with getting adult tickets in advance.
We are two adults and one 14-year old.
July 24, 9:15 am: Arriving Brussels National Airport
Local train from Brussels National to Brussels Station
Train from Brussels Station (which?) to Bruges.
July 27: Bruges to Amsterdam (don't care whether Thalys is part of this unless there is a huge time savings)
Is there an advantage to switching trains at Antwerp instead of Brussels? Antwerp isn't part of our trip but if there was any relatively easy way to get out at Antwerp and have lunch there before continuing on to Amsterdam, that would be great. Is there any safe and reliable small baggage storage available at Antwerp station?
We are flying home from Amsterdam so don't need a train return for this part.
Thanks for any advice!
