Deutsche Bahn are planning to close the whole City Night Line sleeper train network from December 2016. CNL trains connect cities in Holland, Germany, Switzerland and the Czech Republic and so are of considerable use to UK touring cyclists wanting to reach many parts of central Europe. The Paris - Munich and Paris - Berlin services have already been closed. Sleeper trains are of particular interest to cyclists as they usually have large cycle carrying spaces, and so are more convenient for cycle carriage than many of the high-speed trains that form the daytime services.
Concerned cyclists may wish to sign a petition against the closures, at: https://weact.campact.de/petitions/rett ... autozuge-1
There is text in English below the German text. For the signing box 'Vorname' is 'first name', 'Nachname' is 'surname' and 'postleitzahl' is 'postcode'.
Those motivated to do more might, like myself, contact your MEP about it.
