I don't know all the details but thought I would share this info for those that may not pay that much attention to the news.

It looks like that the Duetsche Bahn could go on strike 08/08/07 this Wednesday.

Strike is off until Aug 27th. Only S-Bahn trains in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and other big cities might not be running for a few hours per day.

Ok, latest update in the ongoing debate:

FULL ALL-OUT STRIKE tomorrow, Friday the 5th Oct. All rail connections, including S-Bahn.

THough this might change with all the court orders that get thrown around.
