IRJ: Netherlands Railways recasts IC network in 2025 timetable
Author: cph

NETHERLANDS Railways’ (NS) proposed 2025 timetable includes a major shake-up of the IC network and the introduction of 1600 additional services a week compared with the current timetable.The 2025 timetable has been submitted for assessment to Locov, a national consultative body, which will make recommendations to the minister of infrastructure.Development of the current timetable was strongly influenced by the change in travel patterns since the Covid-19 pandemic. NS withdrew many extra services on Fridays and off-peak, in order to cut costs and due to a shortage of staff, which remains an issue for NS.The 2025 timetable contains many of the changes that NS was planning to introduce in 2023. NS says it also  represents the first step in its two-stage programme to develop services under its new Main Line Network (HRN) concession that starts on January 1 2025.[...]

Just curious about the Netherlands railway infrastructure. Does it operate under an open access model?

It operates under a similar model as elsewhere in Europe where operations are separated from ownership of the infrastructure.

I suspected that, but thanks for the confirmation.

We need to figure out a way to bring the model to North America.

I'll be back with a full-on press on that subject after disposing of a couple of other projects, but one involves open access on a state-owned railroad network, which should be easier to accomplish.

Sounds similar to a government or authority owned airport.

I wouldn't want United Air etc owning the airport and deciding who gets to fly into "their" airport.
