The Netherland's High Speed Line will plug the country into the European high-speed rail network by 2005. Trains will run at up to 300km/h, giving a three hour journey from Amsterdam to Paris. HSL-South will run from Amsterdam and the airport via Rotterdam and Breda to the Dutch-Belgian border serving international and domestic traffic, while its proposed sister project High-Speed Train East will link Amsterdam with Germany.
