Berlin Albrechtshof station
|Construction and location|
|List of railway stations in the Berlin area|
The station is equipped by two outer platforms for passenger service, served only by the local trains RB10 (in 2014: Berlin Hauptbahnhof - Jungfernheide - Nauen) and RB14 (Senftenberg-Nauen). The regional express trains do not call here.
On December 5, 1961 Albrechtshof station was the scene of the successful escape of a Reichsbahn steam-engine driver, who managed to overcome the barriers erected in August that year. As a consequence of the escape of 25 GDR citizens to West-Berlin, 20 metres of track were removed to prevent another breakthrough.
The event was basis for a 1963 film, The Breakthrough.
