For many years the Dutch NS Railway Company runs all trains in the Netherlands. It can be expected that next year different transport companies will exploit the Dutch railway network. Possible that they will use different systems to design timetables, generate travel plans and to handle delays. In this paper we research the coordination between different systems. A prototype of distributed systems in different areas has been developed using agent technology. The system has been tested in simulation studies.
