Thought of your border crossings @jon as we waited at Bad Bentheim yesterday for a Dutch locomotive to replace the German one. Hopefully the two countries will fix this soon!

@th @jon we had to wait three hours there last time as the German loc that was supposed to come broke down on the way. I got my 10k steps in walking up and down the platform that day 😅

@th It’s super easy to solve - Vectron locomotives can run through. But NS doesn’t have enough of them, and DB has none…

@jon @th DB has leased Vectrons, they will replace the current locos in December (timetable change), shortening journey times by 30 minutes.

The rolling stock will be replaced with ICE L sets in 2024.
