Problem now solved – outage caused rail chaos in Northern Germany


A serious power outage brought long-haul traffic in northern Germany to a complete standstill on Saturday morning. Regional traffic also had to be largely stopped. The problem has now been resolved, but more disruptions are expected in the course of the day, a railway spokesman said.

Countless travelers used to be stranded at the train stations because all long-distance traffic and part of the regional traffic were shut down in large parts of northern Germany. Bremen, Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein were affected, Deutsche Bahn writes on Twitter.

Technical failure of the train radio caused chaos
The company advised travelers traveling between Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia and between Berlin and Baden-Württemberg or Switzerland to use connections via Erfurt and Frankfurt/Main. According to the railways, the cause of the chaos was a technical malfunction in the train radio. What exactly led to that, remained open for the time being. Many people may have been caught off guard on the drive into the weekend.

In general, Deutsche Bahn advised its travelers to inform themselves shortly before scheduled journeys via, via the “DB Navigator” app or by calling 030/2970. The Bahn website states: “As soon as we have new information, we’ll keep you updated here.”
