The Wustermark railway station is a railway station in the municipality in the district of Wustermark Havel country in Brandenburg west of Berlin. With the Berlin- Lehrter Railway, the bypass links as well as later emerged Berlin outer ring are or were there several rail lines linked.


The station is located at kilometer 30.5 Lehrterstraße train on the northern outskirts of Wustermark about 500 meters north of the village. About two kilometers east crosses the Berlin outer ring Lehrter train. Four kilometers east lies beyond the outer ring of the marshalling yard Wustermark which is often colloquially referred to as " Wustermark ", but is not to be confused with the Wustermark station.


The train station

The station was in 1871 with Lehrterstraße railway in operation. 1902, the section of Nauen after deer park of the railway line Jiiterbog - Nauen was opened to the goods bypass path around Berlin, who crossed the Lehrter at Wustermark. The Wustermark station was thereby a small hub. 1909 went east of Wustermark the large marshalling yard Wustermark in operation. In order to cope with the traffic to the new marshalling yard, the Lehrter of Spandau Wustermark has four tracks and expanded the bypass path between Wustermark and Nauen double track to the Hamburg train.

After the Second World War, the traffic on Lehrterstraße train towards West Berlin was first partially and later completely interrupted for passenger traffic. Both the Lehrter and the bypass path have since operated only single track due to reparations. In 1953 the Berlin outer ring to drive around West Berlin was built that crossed the Lehrter train near the train station and was connected via connecting curves. Wustermark became a transfer point between the passenger trains from the outer ring and Lehrterstraße web. 1983, the Berlin outer ring was electrified, with the two branches were provided from the ring to the railway stations and Wustermark Wustermark marshalling yard with catenary. The express trains between Berlin and Stendal have since been re-clamped in Wustermark station by a diesel electric locomotive to a and vice versa.

The section of the bypass path of Wustermark to Nauen was electrified in 1993 and served for several years the long-distance traffic between Berlin and Hamburg, as the direct Hamburger train was interrupted. According to reopen them, ended in 1995 the passenger service from Wustermark and Nauen, the section was completely closed in 1996 and partially degraded. In the second half of the 1990s the Lehrter was expanded to high-speed line Hannover- Berlin. Here, the Wustermark station was redesigned. The investments of the bypass lane was doing completely eliminated.

Today the station is primarily for regional transport in the direction of Berlin, Rathenow and Potsdam.


The station was first passenger train stop for the trains to Lehrterstraße train between Berlin, Rathenow and Stendal. Express and express trains did not stop at the station. In 1905 the station was hit by seven passenger train pairs, mostly through drove from Berlin to Hanover, while holding on all or almost all stations.

After the First World War a densified suburban traffic between Berlin and Wustermark was introduced, the trains on this section wrong about every half hour. In addition, the through passenger trains between Berlin and Rathenow stopped at the station. Since 1921 the Berlin suburb of tariff applies to Wustermark.

After the Second World War, the separate suburban traffic was not resumed. Train services in the direction of Berlin was interrupted in Staaken at the city limits, to the building of the Berlin Wall in 1961 could there still in the Berlin S-Bahn change. After the wall was built Wustermark became a transfer point in travel in the direction of East Berlin. The train services remained from the 1960 's to 1990 approximately constant. For example, frequented the annual timetable 1985/86:

After the political change in the GDR, the direct traffic towards West Berlin was resumed. As of 1991 reversed a line between Nauen, and Berlin, which also snapped at the Wustermark station every two hours. There was also a line between Nauen and Potsdam, also every two hours as well as individual traits towards Rathenow. Also, the express train from Berlin was resumed on the Lehrter train, the trains went by, however, the Wustermark station. Trains in the direction of north Berlin outer ring have been set.

1995, construction began on the high-speed line Berlin -Hannover. In the course of the building of the passenger traffic was set towards Rathenow and Nauen and replaced by buses, in the direction of Berlin drove until December 1995 trains every two hours. Only in 1998 the passenger Lehrterstraße train was resumed after Nauen traffic remained permanently set. Today sees rail service (as of 2013) like this:


The train station on Lehrterstraße train was south of the tracks his reception building. The bypass opened in 1902 under railway crossing about two kilometers east of the station Lehrter train and then led parallel to it in the Wustermark station, railway links between the two routes originated in the eastern part of the station. After the Second World War, a connecting curve from the direction Nauen was towards Rathenow. The 1953/54, built the Berlin outer ring gave compound curves from Wustermark both northbound and southbound. To the east of the platform Lehrterstraße train the plants were for the local transport. The Ring line was a separate platform on the north side of the railway tracks, led to the footbridge. Immediately thereafter, the bypass path separated in the direction of Nauen Lehrterstraße web. Thus, while the platform Lehrterstraße train west lay the bridge, the bypass path lay to the east of it.

With the construction of high-speed railway by 1995, the station was completely rebuilt and eliminate the investments of the bypass path including the connections in the direction of Nauen. Also the connection to the outer ring to the north went out of service and was dismantled.

Today the station is at the Altstrecke Lehrterstraße web of island platform with two tracks, it is a Platform loose track joins. To the north lies the double-track high-speed line. West of the station there is a connection between the Altstrecke for high-speed line. The regional express trains that stop in Wustermark Station, change onto the high-speed line, as the Altstrecke is not electrified west of Wustermark. East of the station is the Altstrecke out single track over the Havel Canal and then branches out into two separate parallel routes toward Wustermark marshalling yard and a connection to the southern outer ring.

The platform is accessible via a pedestrian bridge from the forecourt on the southern track, a station building no longer exists.

The end of 2013 were two elevators on the pedestrian bridge will be put into operation, so that the platform is accessible. The construction costs of around one million euros were mainly financed from the federal infrastructure acceleration program.
