This train journey should not forget about 250 passengers of an ICE on the way to Cologne so fast. Due to a technical problem, they had to change trains on Monday evening outside Hannover.
The ICE had come from Berlin lying near the main station in Hanover-Leinhausen, as a spokesman for the railway said in the early Tuesday morning.
Before the evacuation action, the attempt was unsuccessful to tow the train. The passengers traveled on with a delay of three hours, after they had climbed over ladders into the track bed and from there into a spare train parked on the neighboring tracks. Other train connections were not affected by the ICE defect.
