NS runs according to the normal timetable, but there is a risk of disruptions

As planned, the Dutch Railways returned to the usual timetable on Monday.

An NS spokesperson reports that travelers would do well to consult the journey planner shortly in advance, because trains may be canceled.

Because trains have been stationary for a longer period of time and may therefore be difficult to start up, some journeys may be canceled, according to the spokesperson.

The Dutch Railways announced on Sunday that it would return to the regular timetable after train traffic had been seriously disrupted by winter conditions last week.

According to the spokeswoman, trains are now running again on every route.

According to her, there are no problems with the staff on Monday morning.

It was feared in advance that the employees would find it difficult to get to work due to the expected slipperiness, but that is not the case.

From tomorrow we will run the regular timetable, such as for the snow and frost period.

Some trains have stood still for a long time in extreme cold and that can still cause disruptions.

Check the travel planner before departure.
