7-9 and 16-18 hours.
Startup of peak services can be a bit earlier, as you can't be at full strength immediately when the first extra trains start leaving the depots. ;)
Peak hours is the same word as rush hours.

Yeah. Some people just calls it peak hours while others call it rush hour. In Moscow, they are always Russian around. :P I'll shut up now.

In the UK, it's more common to use the word Peak than rush hours.

In Portugal we use the term "rush hours" to explain the timetables for tourists. But sometimes we also use the term "peak hours". So here we can choice... :lol:

(In Portuguese both terms refers to "hora de ponta").

A fictive city. Nobody said anything about a whole country ;)
As far as I am concerned, the Beneluxtrein (the Amsterdam-Brussels intercity service) stops at Rijndam Central Station every hour :D

M5: Denia - Transferium Rijndijk: every 15 minutes
So during peak {or rush} hours, the M5 is not extended to Rijndam Centraal? And will the M4 remain as a 9 carridge service?

No, I haven't extended M5 this time. The line to Transferium Rijndijk is now serviced by line M4 at a 10-minute interval. Line M5 still runs every 15 minutes, which does not combine well with a 10-minute service.

Second; at the central station, line M4 stops at another level (let's call it level -2), which is not suitable for terminating trains coming from Transferium Rijndijk/Denia. Ofcourse you can still send a metro to level -1 (the 4-platform station where M1, M2 and M3 stop), but that would be confusing for passengers; metro's in the same direction departing from different levels.

Third: it requires some pretty intensive planning to change over the service between Denia - Transferium and Denia - Rijndam Central Station 4 times a day. It is a longer route, your metro takes a lot longer before it is back to start a second time (so you can't just plan to start the same metro every 30 from Denia; on the longer run, it is not back yet 30min after the last departure). Therefore, more metro's need to be taken into service to keep the same frequency, needing extra planning to determine the exact moment of leaving the sidings. And ofcourse; the platform occupancy at Transferium Rijndijk, with both terminating (needing at least one track) en trough services (needing two tracks).

So, I decided not to do that all over again for Rijndam 2020. But the activities in Rijndam 2018 remain, you can still run those services there.
(Or you can make your own Rijndam 2020 activity with a Denia-CS service.) ;)

Line M4 (Transferium Rijndijk - Rijndam Airport) runs with 5 services, of which 2 using 3xSG3 and 3 using 2xSG3.
And an additional 3 services (each 2xSG3) CS-Noorderpoort during rush hours.

Thanks for that, I have one more question, so will some M4 services terminate at Noorderport from CS/TRD?
