That translates to "Train Driver's Strike"
The strike was selective, but it affected a train leaving Salzburg at 8A that was to get me to Munich Airport 1025A and sufficient to get me on a 1155A flight home.
Well there was an unaffected 815A "local" making all stops until half way there (Rosenheim) and I thought, "I don't need this".
Well, that "Bayern" train kept to schedule and I got to the Airport 1050A. If "no hangups", and "pulling Business Class rank" everywhere, "I made it".
So let's not hold DB up as some "beacon on the hill". This 80yo does not need that kind of "tense" in what remains in this life.
