Hey Stefan,

We have noticed and of course it would be a great idea to have it in the
iRail format soon. I was planning on writing an adapter for it
( https://github.com/iRail/iRail/tree/master/api/data ) as soon as
possible. We have 4 files that need to be implemented to create an
object model of the data. The output methods are there yet.

First things that we are doing now are busdata for Belgium (yes, things
are going fast over here too) and releasing our new HTML5 app. If you
would create the iRail interface for the NS (with or without writing a
dataplugin on our codebase) you would be my personal hero :-)

Of course you can ask me anything concerning the API. It would be great
to expand our apps' functionality to more countries (we have: BeTrains
(for symbian, maemo, WP7, android, iphone, blackberry playbook and
samsung bada), a new HTML5 webinterface, twittertoys #stationbattle and
@railtweet and other stuff under development)
