Nothing works anymore: A train from Zurich to Lucerne left at 3.10 p.m., then it suddenly stopped just before Zug – in a tunnel.
“I just wanted to go to Lucerne with my buddy for a nice evening and now this!” says a news scout. The man is on a train that left Zurich at 3:10 p.m. and should have been in Lucerne 40 minutes later. But just before Zug, the formation got stuck in a tunnel – for over 90 minutes.
The worst was yet to come: after more than an hour on the train, the lights in the entire composition went out. “It’s getting a little warm, the power is probably off,” reports another news scout. The 380 travelers sat in complete darkness for around 15 minutes.
The mood is relaxed despite the delay
Despite everything, the mood on the train is relaxed: “I would have imagined Friday afternoon differently, but we take it with humor. Who can guess that it took two hours on the train from Zurich HB to Zug, »says another passenger ironically.
Shortly after 5:20 p.m., another train towed the breakdown train and brought the passengers to Zug. On request, SBB confirmed that there was a vehicle malfunction in the Albis tunnel between Sihlbrugg and Litti near Baar. This has now been resolved, but delays must still be expected as a result, said an SBB spokesman.
