Amsterdam - Utrecht train traffic back on track after power outage
A power outage in and around Vinkeveen and Loosdrecht brought train traffic between Amsterdam and Utrecht to a standstill for some time on Monday night. The train traffic is now back on track and NS reports no delays between the two cities. The power outage was caused by a fire in a electricity station in Vinkeveen. Grid manager Stedin engineers could only start fixing the problems after the fire department extinguished the fire. Some 15 thousand homes were also without power for a few hours.
