Train passengers stranded since 2 years near BettembourgĀ 

Concerns are rising about the health of over 70 train passengers currently stranded near Bettembourg for over 2 years.

The train has been in the same spot after severe problems at Bettembourg station and it appears the train has been forgotten about completely. 

Friends and relatives have been giving food supplies through the windows of the train because the driver cannot open the doors because of insurance risks.

“It’s been almost 26 months now,” said one of the passengers. “They keep making announcements that we should be moving shortly, but nothing happens.” 

As Benelux News was going to press, rumours were beginning to circulate that the driver is confident they will be home in time for Christmas. 

More updates to come soon.

Pushing in through back doors of bus to become Olympic sport

The Office of public transport announced today that Luxembourg will be competing in the next Olympics.

Hosted in 2020, Luxembourg will fly several planes to the Olympics to compete for the gold medal for pushing in through the back doors of buses before other people can get off.

“There is strong support for this new event,” said a spokesman, “people all over the country have been practicing for a long time and we anticipate great results.”

“We are starting to see this craze spread on to trains and we will be looking into forming seperate teams for buses, trains and soon trams. It’s a very exciting time to travel.”

The government is urging locals to get as much practice as possible for a chance to compete, though we think there are many people here worthy of the gold medal.
