AMSTERDAM - There were no trains between Amsterdam and Alkmaar this morning after a maintenance engine went off the rails late last night, rail infrastructure manager ProRail reported. The tracks were opened for service once again at 7.45 this morning and limited service was resumed.

NS warns travellers to expect delays of about 30 minutes for the time being.

An engine of rail contractor VolkerRail derailed last night during work near Uitgeest. No one was injured in the incident but the tracks were damaged.

The engine was back on the rails in the course of the morning and the damage caused to a switch was repaired.

Buses were operating to transport travellers from stations along the route for several hours this morning.
