Winter and NS; a combination not always so beloved. Under certain circumstances, the NS may decide to use the tailored scheduling so as to reduce the likelihood of delays.
Expected crowds on holidays
On holidays, such as King's, always many more people traveling by train than on normal days. Therefore, the NS will on this day extra trains, certainly expected on the routes on which the crowds are like around Amsterdam.
Snow and frost
From the winter of 2013/2014 the amended timetable of the train starts on the first day of winter with a 10% probability of 1.5 cm of snow. The years before this was at a rate of 10% on any snow, regardless of the amount. The NS timetable may from winter 2013/2014 to be adjusted at least 50% chance of severe frost. This was a 10% chance of severe frost in the previous years.
When a storm is predicted with gusts of a very high speed, the NS may, with the amended timetable riding. Especially if the storm takes place in the autumn, when there are still many leaves are on the trees, it is more likely than there are trees on the tracks or that leaves a lot of land on the rails that can cause problems.
In extremely hot weather can be chosen, for putting in the revised timetable. Due to the extreme heat trains can break more easily and can expand the track. By putting in fewer trains NS hopes to solve any problems faster.
As you timetables adapted well from which track your train leaves. This is often different than the tracks from where the train departs normally.
The number of days on which the NS adjusted timetable should be used is reduced from an average of 12 to 10 since the winter of 2013/2014. Too often the amended timetable is deployed while afterwards it could be worse turns to fall. On the day of NS can not turn back the revised timetable. The day before his special preparations so not all trains are at their normal place. NS indicates rather too much at once, but to little to drive timetables adapted once.
When there are expected several days of severe frost in the same week, with less severe frost on the intervening days, NS held until the winter of 2013/2014 also on the intervening days timetables adapted to. Because travelers indicated that they find it very undesirable, the trains from the winter of 2013/2014 on light frost days following the normal timetable.
