Am I able to buy a train ticket( from Schiphol to Apeldoorn) in the uk before I travel
Although there is no need to buy a ticket in advance, you can use the website: ns.nl/cs/Satellite/traveller...
There's no need to buy advance tickets for non-international Dutch train services - the Dutch "intercity" services are just regular services and don't require reservations, unlike say the ICE trains.
Just buy your ticket from one of the machines at Schiphol but note that there is now a surcharge for using credit cards and that not all machines take cash.
Of course you can also buy your ticket at the ticket counter (I forget what that's called) from a real person.
