Today, we are happy to inform you that ProRail and DB Netz introduced new rules in the border agreement for RU Emmerich – Zevenaar Oost to ease procedures concerning defect trains. With validity of 1 february 2020 helptrains are now authorized to circulate from and towards the other side of the border, which was not feasible before. The new rules are clear and include procedures for information exchange between IMs (Betriebszentrale Duisburg DB Netz/VLC Goederen ProRail) and RU as well as information between the operations centers (BZ/VLC Goederen) and the emergency manager (Notfallmanager/Algemeen Leider).
