In 1997, during the construction of the Betuwe-Route railway line from Rotterdam to Germany, a human skeleton was found near Hardinxveld-Giessendam. Investigation showed this is the skeleton of a woman who lived here about 7500 years ago, being the oldest human skeleton found in the Netherlands. Because the remains have been found during the construction of the Betuwe-Route, the woman was called "Trijntje". Trijntje is an old Dutch first name for women and is also a play of words to the Dutch word "treintje", which means little or short train.
Arriva trainset 408 is given the name "Trijntje".
