Dirty ICE Train, Munich, Germany

The German train strike has shaken Germany for several months by now. While it is not exactly a picture fest for news photographers it certainly is interesting to see a train station now and then. During one of the recent strike days I visited the Munich train station to find this dirty ICE train, one of the few trains waiting for departure (while most of the other scheduled trains were late or cancelled).

The latest signs from the strike frontier are not looking promising - Deutsche Bahn keeps refusing a separate and entirely independent contract with the train drivers union (Gewerkschaft der Lokführer, GDL), who in return reject any offer coming from Deutsche Bahn. - Let's just hope that this issue is sorted out quickly as each strike day is affecting millions of commuters.

Anyway, have a good month, folks!
