Disruption of train traffic between Hilversum and Bussum shuts down

Between Hilversum and Bussum an intercity train with 60 people stranded tonight. The cause is a defect in the catenary.

The train was able to continue under its own power after an inspection, but due to the damage, trains will not be able to run for the next few hours on the busy route, which runs on the Schiphol-Amsterdam-Amersfoort and Utrecht-Almere lines.

The repair will take until at least 00.30 tonight, is the expectation of the NS. In the meantime, passengers between Utrecht and Almere will have to take into account a delay of one hour.
