Germany turns to trains without machinists

Germany switches to trains without machinists


Deutsche Bahn, the German national railway company, switches to automatic mode of operation. In the next few years, trains without drivers will begin to operate in the country. The pilot project has already started on a test railway track built in the vicinity of the Ore Mountains, but so far passengers have not carried such trains.

The biggest challenge of the project is to organize the automatic movement of high-speed and conventional passenger trains, as well as freight trains that run on a much more complex scheme than, for example, the U-Bahn underground train system. Nevertheless, now the tests are going so well that Deutsche Bahn has already begun negotiations with trade unions, which, obviously, will be against such a cardinal decision that reduces the numberjobs.
