Two stations were later added Savignyplatz 1 August between Charlottenburg and Zoologischer Garten, and Tiergarten 5 January between Zoologischer Garten and Bellevue Suburban trains[ edit ] Suburban trains operated on the local tracks, the so-called city track. At first, these were either services to the suburbs or connections to the Berlin Ringbahn , running as "half ring trains", using the Stadtbahn and either the northern or the southern Ringbahn.
The trains were pulled by locomotives, which ran on coke to minimise the smell. Doors on the train compartments had to be opened by the passengers themselves and stations were not called out on the train. Fares in the early 20th century were 10 pfennig in 3rd class and 15 pfennig in 2nd class. Freight traffic[ edit ] The freight traffic to the central market at Alexanderplatz was carried by seven special trains per day, of which four ran at night, two during the day and one in the evening.
By the end of the 19th century, however, most of these train runs had to terminate at their old destination stations again due to the increasing local traffic on the Stadtbahn. Trains heading west usually left from the Schlesischer Bahnhof station, those heading east from Charlottenburg. Depots were situated in Rummelsburg then called Bw Karlshorst and Grunewald. Between and , the Stadtbahn viaduct was thoroughly modernised in order to handle the ever-increasing train weight.
Also, the train sheds of Alexanderplatz and Schlesischer Bahnhof were replaced. The station hall was only glazed in the s, however. The notable terraced vestibule dates from the same time. Electric operation[ edit ] The S-Bahn logo. Therefore, suburban services to Spandau could be moved from the long-distance tracks to the local tracks.
The last steam trains disappeared in when the ring became fully operated by electric trains. Half-ring trains operated only as peak time services. In December the term S-Bahn and the symbol of a white S on a green circle were introduced for the city, ring and suburban services.
The national importance had diminished with the loss of eastern Germany ; only a few trains ran towards the western zones. Some trains from the Soviet zone terminated on the Stadtbahn. During the Berlin Blockade , the long-distance traffic came to an almost complete halt. From 18 May , when all Berlin terminal stations and all other long-distance stations in West Berlin were closed, the station Zoologischer Garten remained the only long-distance station for the western part of the city.
The station also featured a border crossing into East Berlin. Later, through coaches and shuttle trains connecting to the night trains to Scandinavia crossed the intra-German border on the Stadtbahn as well. Due to a quirk in legislation, the West Berlin parts of the Stadtbahn belonged to the Deutsche Reichsbahn , which made it and therefore the GDR government one of the largest landowners in West Berlin.
In East Berlin , a flat fee of 0. West Berlin politics and most of the populace fully boycotted the S-Bahn, which was run by the East German railways, and introduced bus and U-Bahn lines running parallel to the S-Bahn network and the Stadtbahn. Restoration during the Cold War[ edit ] Despite problems, the Deutsche Reichsbahn made improvements to the line and reconstructed at great expense the Westkreuz railway station which had been built on swamp land.
Soon thereafter, talks with the GDR commenced regarding improvements of the Stadtbahn in West Berlin as well as the modernisation of the Zoologischer Garten station. The Lehrter Stadtbahnhof was also carefully restored to its original s look and became a listed building. The first InterRegio train ran to Cologne in The Hamburg line was soon extended to Dresden and Prague , and the former Interzonenzug trains from Munich were converted to InterCity trains and now ran on the Stadtbahn as well.
The western part of the Stadtbahn was electrified on 4 July up to Zoologischer Garten station. The eastern part of the line up to Ostbahnhof had been electrified since As soon as electrification reached the Zoo station, ICE trains began to use the station. Modernisation from [ edit ] In October a large-scale modernisation programme was started on the Stadtbahn.
The viaducts were checked and strengthened, and the tracks were bedded in concrete to improve durability and comfort. Almost all stations saw large financial investments and were thoroughly modernised. Long-distance traffic between Zoo and Ostbahnhof stations was interrupted during the construction period and the S-Bahn trains temporarily used the long-distance line.
The realigned section consisted of two m-long bridges spanning the station and the adjacent Humboldthafen port. Until the summer of , the Stadtbahn was the main thoroughfare for long-distance trains, which usually stopped at Zoologischer Garten and Ostbahnhof which was renamed in When the new Hauptbahnhof opened on 28 May the importance of the line diminished slightly, as many trains now would use the new north-south line connected to the Hauptbahnhof.
The remaining intercity trains on the Stadtbahn, mainly those heading toward Hanover and Cologne , now usually call at Hauptbahnhof and Ostbahnhof.
