IT work to blame - train cancellations: "Chaos at Graz main station"

ÖBB customers complain on the “Krone” telephone on Friday morning: “Currently there is chaos at Graz Central Station. There are currently no trains leaving and apparently nobody knows what’s going on. So far, no rail replacement service has been set up either.” IT work is obviously to blame…

One of the callers complained on the “Krone” phone: “Obviously there should be a major technical problem, and that since at least 5:30 a.m..” There are no trains leaving, total chaos reigns here!” ÖBB spokesman Herbert Hofer told the “Krone” that “there can be no question of chaos”, but train cancellations actually occurred. The error was caused by maintenance work on the IT system. The problem still exists. Many people are affected, trains are cancelled, delays throughout Austria. Was it a cyber attack? “No, we can rule that out,” says Hofer. We apologize for the inconvenience to travelers. The fact is, there are many people affected, trains are delayed or canceled all over Austria. An end is currently not foreseeable.
