The strike hit local trains in particular, with freight trains, suburban trains and high-speed trains stopped largely. GDL union sözcüSü announced that the strike ended at 06:00 in the morning as planned.
However, the effects of the strike were reflected as delays in train services until noon. Strike under the leadership of GDL; Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Nuremberg and the Rhine-Main region covered most of Germany. Although the first wave of the strike ended, there were intense delays in the train service especially in Berlin, Hamburg, Stuttgart and Munich. .
GDL, who failed to make such claims against the WB, had called on all machinists not to join, but to join the strike. In particular, the authorities report that long-haul voyages should take account of the cancellation of delays and the continuation of delays.
