Dutch term or phrase: doorleggen trein
That is all there is in one short phrase. I looked and could not find anything relevant that would make this clear to me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Asker: Thanks! It seems to me that that could be the right answer, it would make sense in view of the rest of the text that I had before this one.

disagree  René Knoop: No, this is not the right answer. Doorleggen trein means something different. But I need a bit more context.

Reference

Reference information:
The note added by Lianne says it all, "doorleggen" means in this context: adding a destination to the timetable of the train. That means a train already at its final destination is given a new timetable contiguous to its original one, and sometimes a new number (or prefix) in order to allow it to travel further down the line.
If the subject is right, of course.
