In the Hanover area, train passengers had to prepare for delays and cancellations on Wednesday evening. This was announced by Deutsche Bahn. The reasons for this were, among other things, a field fire and a switch that was expanded due to heat, as a spokesman for the railway informed. In the meantime, there had been a line closure and a fire brigade operation due to a field fire next to the tracks between Minden and Bückeburg. Train services resumed here later in the evening.
