Last news is that since 10.10hr. the cause has been cleared (a disturbance in GSM-fone/network) and that by now trains are rolling again-expect delays and cancellations and other disturbances for a few more hours, if not all day due to complexity of the interworking network

Suspended Thalys trains forced me to cancel my trip. I'm going to lose a lot of money: interrail pass, seat reservations, hotels... Happened to someone else. Can Thalys be held liable? Happy travels and better luck than mine. Thanks

I just sent mail.Thanks

Deutsche Bahn has big problems with their Systems, and have stopped all trains in northem Germany for the moment. 

International trains that are affacted

IC Berlin-Hannover-Amsterdam cancelled on all the route

IC trains Hamburg-Denmark ends/starts in Padborg (border Germany-Denmark). 

If possible reroute your plan to not transit in north Germany. This means cities like Hamburg, Hannover or Bremen.

For real time information check bahn.de/aktuell and DB Navigator App.

Confirm this as I am right now sitting in an ICE and saw the giant Q s for help in Dusseldorf 20 mins ago. Unclear how long this is to last.

BElgium had a strike on 5/10 and has announced a national total strike (not just transportation) for 9/11.

And ITaly also seems to suffer from extended short strikes in various areas for a long time.
