German federal authorities have taken over the investigation as to what brought down the Northwest section of Germany’s train network this past weekend.  The trains in Hamburg, Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony and Bremen were down for three hours on Saturday due to a failure in the digital communications system between the trains. Officials later found that cables for the system were deliberately cut.
