Couple of days ago I made a trip out of Germany over Malmö to Göteborg. But one guy called Murphy accompanied me obviously. Two different socalled accidents on the rails in two different countries made it a trip with a slightly over 4 hours delay, arriving in Copenhagen around 20:30. Just a couple of minutes too late for the last connection to Göteborg. I decided to take the next train to Malmö and see from there what to do (searching a hotel or something like that). I was pleasantly (spoileralert: at first) surprised to see a train from which the platform sign said that this train was going to Göteborg. Surprised, because such a train I did not see at the timetables. However on the train itself I saw no sign of Göteborg, so I asked the conductor. “It’s half right” she said. The train would be split in Malmö and one half would go to Göteborg.
After the personel change in Malmö the Swedish conductor told me the train would not go to Göteborg. But he was not surprised that I was told differently by the Danish crew. “Danish train crew is just not interested in the Swedish timetable” he said to me.
Shouldn’t some managers at DSB not searching for another job? Starting with the crew of the platform signs.
