SNCF to offer compensation for passengers after fatal collision on February 14, but will CFL follow suite?

(PC) Rail service between France and Luxembourg has been heavily disrupted since a fatal train collision on February 14.

Immediately after the collision, a large-scale clean-up operation rendered the line out of use for a week.

Now, more than two weeks on, the line has still yet to return to full capacity.

Following this disruption, France's SNCF made a statement through regional director Jacques Weill announcing that its passengers would receive "financial compensation".

He stopped short, however, of specifying an actual amount.

SNCF spokesman Marc Mathey said: "As long as the situation on the line is still disrupted, it is difficult to put a figure to reimbursements."

Luxembourg's CFL has declined to comment on whether it will follow suit.
