International Disruption in Munich North Shunting Facility (RFC ScanMed)

After the heavy rain on Wednesday night (June 23rd), the technical systems at the Munich North marshalling yard failed after a water ingress. No single wagon traffic is currently possible there. Passing trains can run after consultation with the operations center of DB Netz AG. For freight hauliers, DB is developing alternative concepts for nearby nodes and other marshalling yards. In addition, technicians are on site around the clock to ensure that traffic in the facility can start up again as quickly as possible.

As early as tomorrow, Saturday (June 26th), part of the facility in the Munich North marshalling yard can be used again, but further restrictions are to be expected in the medium and long term.


UPDATE (30 June 2021):

For the time being, a good 20 percent of single wagon traffic at the Munich North marshalling yard is possible again. From the end of July, more than 50 percent of the individual wagons will be able to be processed there again, but technicians will continue to be on site. After heavy rain on the night of June 23rd and a water inrush, the technical systems of the marshalling yard failed. Trains going through to Austria and Italy can pass the station. For the transports in single wagon traffic, the DB has developed alternative concepts to nearby nodes and other marshalling yards.
