S8 is running to and from the airport ever 20 minutes. S1 is not going to the airport:Does anyone have any information on whether I will be able to use the S - Bahn from Munich airport to the city Centre tomorrow at about 23.30. During the last strike, I believe that line was working but I can't seem to find any information today
Davetheguard: try this: http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/bhftafel.exe/enOn the National Rail Enquiries website, there is a link to a real time train departure board for each station. The same information, and in a more detailed format too, is of course also available at realtimetrains.
Is such information available anywhere about individual stations on the German railway system? It would be very useful to get a better feeling of what is happening on the ground during the present strikes.
Based on this quote in the press 'EVG represents around 100,000 Deutsche Bahn employees, of which 5,000 are train drivers' I suspect the answer is most grades which means that they can attempt to stop the job in many more ways than just not driving Deutsche Bahn's trains.On the subject of any strikes by EVG, what are the ramifications of their members going on strike? What grades do they represent? and would a strike by them be less, or more, disruptive of DB services than the other union?
Phew.... that hopefully protects my outward journey.The conciliation process has been extended until 30th June and a statement is expected next Wednesday.
