Belgium Netherlands Train Troubles

When railroad bosses proudly unveiled their new Fyra train connecting Amsterdam and Brussels they called it the "missing link" in Europe's high-speed rail network. Now, the Italian-built trains are missing in action. Technical problems dogged the 250-kmh (155-mph) trains since they came into service last month, repeatedly delaying trips between the Dutch and Belgian capitals that were supposed to shave more than an hour off the regular intercity service the Fyra replaced.
