Today I encountered a premium example for how deep a bad business strategy can impact. In the case given, one single damaged engine lead to subsequent issues not only in wide parts of western Germany, but even affected international traffic. Trains had to be reorganized up to Amsterdam, Holland, where an “ICE International” train connects to Frankfurt (Main, Germany).
Train assembly seems an international issue. Or at least an issue bound to Deutsche Bahn being involved. It seems to difficult to accomplish that an actual car order is displayed on the mostly digital on-platform displays. I stopped counting how many times a train was ordered in opposite directions, and now that I think about it, it was mostly about international trains.
Now and then, business takes me beyond national borders. Which is a nice opportunity to prepare for the next-bigger scope (Europe). Even better, to the Netherlands. Better, because in many details, the Dutch are doing things quite pragmatically. This includes mobility.
