No train traffic is currently possible to and from Zaandam. According to NS, this is due to "multiple disruptions". The rail company hopes to get trains restarted in this area by 10:00 a.m.

No trains are traveling between Dieren and Zutphen, and between Utrecht Centraal and Hilversum due to maintenance work taking longer than expected. Buses are running on both routes. The Dieren-Zutphen disruption is expected to last until at least 2:00 p.m. NS hopes to solve the disruption between Utrecht Centraal and Hilversum by 9:45 a.m.

Points failures are causing problems on the Schiphol to Lelystad, and Utrecht to The Hague lines. Fewer trains are running between Amsterdam Zuid and Duivendrecht until at least 10:30 a.m. There will be no intercity trains between Utrecht Centraal and Den Haag Centraal for the rest of the day. 

No train traffic is possible between Alkmaar and Hoorn due to broken trains. NS can't yet say when this issue will be resolved. A broken train is also causing problems on the route between Dronten and Kampen Zuid, though some trains are still running on this line.
