The busy route between North Rhine-Westphalia and Berlin is affected. If you wanted to take the ICE from NRW towards the capital, you had to expect diversions and delays of around 60 minutes. The freight trains of two private railway companies collided around 25 kilometers from Wolfsburg near Leiferde early Thursday morning. One of the trains had stopped at a corresponding signal, the second train drove up for an initially unclear reason. Two of its 25 tank wagons filled with propane gas overturned and two more derailed.
