Dutch Rail to ditch Hispeed brand

Dutch railway company NS is to shut down its Hispeed division, which focused on selling tickets on high-speed trains to other countries.

No jobs will go with the closure, which has been prompted by the collapse of the Fyra high-speed service to Brussels. International train services will become part of the ordinary NS Reizigers passenger operation from October.
