Post Titled: Der BAHNSTREIK

One might think that if you knew the trains would be at a standstill that you might seek out another method of transportation. Does not bode well for these creatures of habit, who clearly take for grated (of feel that they have a right to) these supposedly clock-work-workings of society...
I only understand the prpblem superficially- BUT for the past ten years or so, as the Bahn has had to comepete with air travel, it has not had competitive prices- in fact, as far as I can tell- it has raised prices to compensate for lost revenue. Not a good way to attract new customers or even to keep a loyal client base.
