Fun fact: In communist Eastern Germany, state-owned #DeutscheReichsbahn operated more than 100 snowploughs on its small railway system. After the German reunification, most of these were scrapped.
Today, the whole country of Germany has 43 ploughs for 34.000 kilometres of railways.
As a result, hundreds of trains are cancelled every time it snows, because the #DeutscheBahn doesn't have enough ploughs. 🤡
