High speed rail services between A’dam and Brussels will boost prices by almost 30%. Yikes! From DutchNews. US tourists would do well to double-check prices from RailEurope in case there are savings to be had there.
Then there is the possibility that some regular train services will disappear as a result of the high speed implementation. The high speed trains don’t stop in the Hague but the ‘slow’ trains they are replacing did, which cuts service to den Haag, a major center that can’t exactly be called a backwater. Somebody should be rethinking this revised train schedule.
