I had to use the train service here. Beautiful to look at, not much else i can say as it is just a train station. But a beautiful one at that.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

Yes you can do individual journeys and pay the driver, or get 24/48 hour pass which is cheaper. Great way to get around main sites of Amsterdam!
