High-speed train delayed again

The high speed train connection (HSL) between Amsterdam and the Belgian border has suffered a five month setback and will now not be ready until December next year because of problems with its security system, reports the Volkskrant. The train will travel at 160 kph hour until October 2008 when it will speed up to 300 kph.
