Bavaria: Preparations for salvage after train accident completed

Garmisch-Partenkirchen (dpa/lby) - After the serious train accident in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the preparations for salvaging the remaining parts of the train have now been completed. Contrary to the announcement, however, the salvage of the last wagon and the locomotive was no longer started, said a spokesman for Deutsche Bahn on Tuesday. That should start on Wednesday morning.

The 160-ton lifting crane from the Ruhr area arrived at the scene of the accident on Tuesday. He is supposed to lift the wagon wreck, which weighs 50 tons, back onto the rails. With the remains of the train confiscated, the carriage is then towed away and examined by the authorities. "Then we have to see how quickly we can get the rails provisionally renovated," explained the railway spokesman. "And then we have to plan how to get the locomotive lifted, it's difficult to estimate."

It is therefore not yet possible to give a forecast as to when the route will be open to rail passengers again, especially since new rails have to be laid and overhead lines have to be installed. "We hope that we are fast," emphasized the railway spokesman. However, every small step must be agreed with the authorities.

At noon on June 3, a regional train from Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Munich derailed. Four women and a 13-year-old from the region died. Almost 70 people were injured. A woman was recently in a critical condition. The cause is still unclear. The focus is on a technical cause.
