The train service between Amsterdam Centraal and Leiden is divided between InterCity and Sprinter trains.
The InterCity trains (heading to Den Haag Centraal or Vlissingen) call at fewer stations than the Sprinter trains, but now take a longer route via Haarlem.
The Sprinter trains (also heading to Den Haag Centraal) call at more stations, but take the more direct route via Schiphol, so are only 4 mins slower.
