Passengers now need to check the internet better before boarding the train – because trains are currently canceled every day. The reason given on Twitter is “technical malfunction”.
On Tuesday morning, three lines RB10, RE7 and RE1 were affected. One train from Berlin to Frankfurt / Oder and one to Vanstorf-Waltstadt were canceled. The passengers were sent to the next train.
When asked, a railway spokesman said it could be due to heat, more precisely to “humid hot air”. The spokesman did not say exactly what was wrong with the locomotives and locomotives. In the past, air conditioning systems on trains have failed at high temperatures.
There were plenty of failures and problems over the weekend. Two trains that were fully occupied on the RE3 track were stopped at Berna on Friday afternoon. Several hundred passengers had to switch to another train. There was a lot of crowd because a lot of people had bicycles with them. Railways did not give a reason for the train transfer. Trains are not defective because they can each go back.

Staff shortages should not be the cause of current failures. Due to the lack of train drivers, there were numerous failures in regional transport in the summer of 2019. The IRE direct connection with Hamburg has long been a complete failure.
In the fall of that year, the Werkerswerband called the Berlin-Brandenburg (VPP) train for several crisis talks, after VPP boss Suzanne Henkel spoke of the “unjust burden on passengers”. VPP ordered and paid for local transportation in the region.
