It is also called the Betuwelijn ("Betuwe" line). MerwedeLingelijn is the name of the western part between Dordrecht and Geldermalsen. It is operated by Arriva. (Tiel - Elst as part of the service Tiel - Arnhem) and Nederlandse Spoorwegen (Geldermalsen - Tiel as part of the service Utrecht - Tiel). The railway connects to the Arnhem–Nijmegen railway in Elst. There were two connections to the Arnhem–Nijmegen railway in the past from the junction near Vork station; one to Elst and towards Nijmegen connecting near Ressen. The Nijmegen junction was used until 1990 and torn down during construction of the Betuweroute in order of creating a junction between the Betuweroute from Rotterdam and the Arnhem–Nijmegen railway towards both Arnhem and Nijmegen.
