After a cable fire at Sternschanze station, there were massive restrictions on rail traffic in and around Hamburg.

These continue to persist.

Update from May 15, 2022, 9:28 a.m .:

Deutsche Bahn expects further disruptions in long-distance traffic on Sunday, May 15, 2022, resulting from the cable fire that broke out on Friday, May 13, 2022 in Hamburg happened near Sternschanze train station.

As reported by Deutsche Bahn, the severe impairments to the ICE connections to, via and from Hamburg are expected to last until Sunday evening.

According to a railway spokesman, it is still unclear how long the repairs on the route between Hamburg Central Station and Hamburg-Altona station will take.

After a cable fire: rail traffic in Hamburg continues to be disrupted

Update from May 14th, 2022, 9:53 a.m .:

A cable fire at Deutsche Bahn in the middle of Hamburg has led to severe disruptions in long-distance traffic nationwide.

The impairments would probably continue until Saturday, said a spokeswoman.

According to the federal police, there were still disruptions in long-distance traffic in the morning, but S-Bahn trains were running on time again.

The cable fire occurred near Hamburg's Sternschanze train station on the so-called connecting railway, which runs from Altona via Diebsteich, Sternschanze and Dammtor to the main station.

It is one of the busiest routes in Germany.

According to the railways, only a maximum of three trains per hour could run on the route on Friday.

Central Station:

Hamburg

tracks:

8 long-distance train tracks, 4 S-Bahn tracks

Opening:

December 5, 1906

Type:

separation station

All communication on this route between the interlockings runs via the affected cable, and the switches and signals are controlled via it.

According to a railway spokeswoman, the cable is a 1000-wire copper cable.

That would be very difficult to get back.

Nothing was initially known about the cause of the fire.

Original report from May 13, 2022:

Hamburg – At around 8:20 p.m. on Thursday evening, the Hamburg fire brigade was alerted to a fire near Sternschanze station.

A fire broke out in the bushes just behind the railway bridge on Schanzenstrasse.

The fire spread quickly and spread to a cable duct, so the power had to be shut off.

The fire was not extinguished until around 9:30 p.m.

The fire caused massive disruptions to regional HVV rail traffic as early as the evening, as well as long-distance traffic.

Trains no longer ran from Altona station via the Dammtor line.

Even individual trains between Hamburg and North Rhine-Westphalia no longer run.

In addition, the ICE, IC and EC routes between Hamburg and southern Germany, Hamburg and Nuremberg as well as Hamburg and the Czech Republic are affected by failures on various traffic sections.

DB provides information on the current disruptions on its website.

The disruptions are expected to last until midday.
