op en af = up and down, northbound and southbound, etc. (train directions)

regarding these: T_af2 and T_op1 items, I am not sure what they mean by “op en af”.

up and down the track?

having read this: __https:%%// I am certain they must be referring to the two main train directions, but these are referred to in different ways in different countries and systems. pls check with Prorail for their preference, in Dutch and English…

[another possibility, not relevant here I think is: on and off (as in: op- en af stapelen)]
