Two weeks after Arriva opened the weekly night connection between Groningen and Schiphol, an emergency repair on the track throws a spanner in the works. The train, with a first stop in Assen, will not run tonight.
Arriva informed the travelers who had booked a ticket with a push message. “The cause is an emergency repair to the track,” a spokesman said RTV North. “That only became known this afternoon. We tried to have the train run via a different route, but that turned out to be impossible due to the short term.”
For that reason, arranging replacement transport was also not possible, according to the spokesperson. “Of course, all people who have booked a ticket will get their money back.”
The night train would depart from Groningen Central Station at 1:48 am.
