My EC debit/bank cards work at DB & VGN machines, as well as at cash machines in the US and UK, but not at British Rail ticketing machines, though they do work at the counter. I can't recall if they work at Dutch or Belgian ticket machines, i.e. elsewhere in proper EU countries.

So to sum up my view of British vs German rail plusses and minusses...smartphone tickets, big plus for DB. Choice of departure station at ticket machines not limited to the location of the machine, plus for BR (right?) (do I have that the wrong way round?). Paying with German debit cards at machines, plus for DB, minus for BR. Information about delays whilststood on the platform waiting for a delayed train, plus for BR, MASSIVE MINUS for DB. Apologetic nature of information about delays, MASSIVE PLUS for BR.
