Ams - Koln train journey time?

I may have missed the reason for it on here, bur I was checking on taking an ICE train, Koln to Amsterdam at the end of the month expecting to see a direct service in about 2.5 hours, but I only see trips with a change and a journey time of 4 hours, anyone know why?

Engineering work perhaps?

What date had you planned on traveling?

I have filled in the 28.10. and there is the usual timetable.

Of course not all trains are direct trains, you have to select them. What date did you try?

Engineering works that weekend.

You can take the ICE from Utrecht, you just need to get there first.

I did! It was a lovely relaxing experience. The cats were well cared for and the guys on the boat were more than willing to chat and tell the story of the boat , the cats on it and why you see so many cats wandering around the streets and in shops in Amsterdam.

Anyone with the slightest care for animal wellbeing should visit and donate some cash.
