These were the facts: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006_Zoufftgen_rail_crash Will open in a new tab or window
In contrast to the above Wiki article, this accident happened (among other things) also because:

- the "RST" did not worked the day of the accident - and a few days before. Therefore the train coming from Bettembourg could not be stopped by "RST" (Radio-Sol-Train). (Radio communication @ 468,050MHz).
- The demand of the unions, to introduce a "red button for emergency shutdown of the contact wire tension" was not upheld. The red button was not introduced until some years after the accident and it´s still not installed everywhere. The driving current could not be switched off that way.
- Last but not least, the accident happened because a control light was installed under a table top. The relevant department head did not granted a longer cable to install the pilot light on the desk (in the visible range of officials).

"Domm gelaaf" !!
