After the latest change in the timetable, the experiences of rail passengers who take the train from Zapfendorf in the morning in the direction of Bamberg are quite different. From "not much better to "a nice feeling are the first feelings after the railroad has at least offered the possibility of relief at Zapfendorf station with an additional train stop. The passengers would have to make use of this themselves, but that doesn’t seem to be so easy.
Until now, two trains left Zapfendorf for Bamberg at around seven o’clock. One stopped at 6.52 o’clock, the next one at 7.10 a.m. With both, especially students, but also workers who start at 8 o’clock should come to the cathedral city. But above all the train at 7.10 o’clock, the "school train was recently overcrowded, which is why the railroad has decided to add a regional express train, which departs at 7.02 actually drove through without stopping, since a few days additionally stop lets. The result?
"Now everyone fits in well
"It’s nice to see that something has changed", says the student Cornelia Porzner. It’s a "nice feeling, that a large company like Deutsche Bahn AG had listened to a relatively small number of its customers. The additional train has already brought relief "now all fit well nei". People felt "a bit fooled" by the previous conditions: The loudspeaker announcements to clear the aisles and – inside – to step back from the doors so that they could be closed. Both were simply not possible.
Twice it happened to her that she couldn’t get on the train and had to wait until later to get to school. There one had understanding for the situation, but often up to 30 – mostly smaller – children had to remain outside. "It felt strange", says Cornelia Porzner.
