The Anonymous Widower

From Bremen Hauptbahnhof To Buxtehude

This should have been an easy journey with a change at Bremerhaven Hbf.

But it wasn’t and I had a nearly eighty minute wai at Bremerhaven.

If this sort of ptoblem had occured with most railway conpanies, you’d have got accurate updates and information, but even though there were some announcements, even the German passengers were confused.

I temember one incident on Greater Anglia on an extremely windy day, when a tree brought the overhead wires down at Chelmsford. Station staff at Colchester were handing out refund forms and I got refunded my trip back to Liverpool Street.

But where were the Germans?

Nowhere to be seen for a start!

I thought EU regulations laid down a tefund policy, if trains were late.

When I got to Buxtehude, a fellow passenger told me there had been signalling problems.

How do I claim my refund?

  1. see https://www.bahn.de/p/view/service/auskunft/fahrgastrechte/entschaedigung.shtml and https://www.bahn.de/p/view/service/auskunft/fahrgastrechte/uebersicht.shtml If you don’t read German, try Google Translate! If your journey was on EVB services, then it looks like they are part of the DB scheme – not all operators are.
