The connection shown on NS International is into an IC train which calls at Utrecht on route to Groningen.

Though it doesn't particularly matter which train you opt to take, the tickets for the part of the journey between Rotterdam and Utrecht won't be train specific - so you can use them on any train on from Rotterdam.

**NS International shows 'Rotterdam Centraal Eurostar' as the station that the Eurostar will arrive at, but it is the same station, Rotterdam Centraal, that the connections on to Utrecht will depart from.
