More disruption on the rails between Luxembourg and France

The railway traffic between Thionville and Luxembourg is again seriously disturbed on Thursday morning due to French trade union strikes.

Many French drivers used the so-called “droit de retrait” (right to withdrawal) after hearing the Luxembourg court prohibited any movement on the section where the railway collision of 14 February took place in Bettembourg.

The investigator had announced this routine measure measure for Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning to continue their investigation.

SNCF spokesman Didier Wallerich recommends to use other means of transport.

The French trade unions complained that the CFL did not report this blocking to the French side.

In their communication, the French railway workers also spoke of a supposed further victim, which had been recovered in the debris of the train. However, the Luxembourg prosecutor’s office could not confirm this so far.
