Two communication cables were cut at two different locations in Germany on Saturday. Sabotage is likely.
This forced long-distance rail services to be suspended entirely on Saturday in northern Germany.
JUST IN – Long-distance rail services in northern Germany were suspended entirely this morning.
Two communications cables (GSM-R) had been cut at two different places.
Security authorities speak of initial indications of possible sabotage, according to Spiegel.

The attack came after the Russian Nord Stream Pipelines, 1 and 2, were damaged last week in a massive explosion, that shut down the gas pipelines to Germany and Europe.
So far, no one has taken responsibility for the attack. The blasts put Germany’s economy in further turmoil as winter approaches and gas supplies are limited.
Via the German news reporter at Der Spiegel-
The radio system GSM-R has been disabled.
The German Train Company “Deutsche Bahn” says that the complete failure of the German rail system in North Germany is due to sabotage. The radio system GSM-R has been disabled.
Well, that is quite a coincidence.

Obvviously, someone is trying to draw Germany into a war with Russia.
Only days after NordStream pipeline blasts: rail traffic in much of northern Germany suspended this morning, with @derspiegel’s security sources talking of possible sabotage. Cables important to GSM-R (mobile comms between drivers, signalers etc) found severed in two locations. https://t.co/VxvL9PTqrq

Aufgrund einer technischen Störung am GSM-R (Zugfunk) auf allen Strecken ist in Raum Norddeutschland derzeit kein Zugverkehr im Bahnverkehr möglich. Alle Verbindungen fallen bis auf Weiteres aus!

https://t.co/JIY4H14VMN sagt, dass das GSM-R Netz kaputt ist und deshalb kein Zug fahren kann. Das bestätigt im Zug auch die Schaffnerin per Durchsage.
Aber für die Bahn ist es pauschal: “Reparatur an der Strecke” https://t.co/pjbGBWubje pic.twitter.com/YyDuswZWEJ
