Rail transport in the Netherlands utilises a 2809 km long network maintained by ProRail and operated by a number of different operators as its mentioned in Netherlands rail map. The entire network is standard gauge. The whole network itself is maintained and organised by the government agency ProRail, it is also responsible for allocating slots to the different companies.
The rail network of Netherlands is heavily focused on passenger rail services and connects virtually all major cities, although there are still a few cities without a train connection, including Drachten, Amstelveen, Oosterhout, and Katwijk as you can see in Netherlands rail map. The network is well developed and dense. Over the last decades, there has been only little expansion of the network; instead, most attention is focused on upgrading the network in terms of efficiency and capacity. As of 2008, the issue of speed is also getting more attention, as there are plans to increase maximum speeds to 160 km/h on some sections.
ProRail takes care of maintenance and extensions of the national railway network infrastructure (but excluding metros and trams, for which see below), allocating rail capacity, and traffic control. The rail capacity supplied by ProRail is used by five public transport operators (see Netherlands rail map) as well as cargo operators: Railion, ERS, ACTS, Rail4Chem. Aside from these, there are a few tiny operators, amongst whom for example Herik Rail, with seven carriages, where trains can be chartered for parties, meetings, etc.
