Line S 7 is an S-Bahn line on the Rhine-Ruhr network in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which has been operated by Abellio from Wuppertal Hauptbahnhof to Solingen Hauptbahnhof since 15 December 2013. It is also known as the Der Müngstener, a reference to the Müngsten Bridge, which it crosses. It is operated at 20 minute intervals, using (LINT 41) vehicles.[1] The service was previously classified as Regionalbahn service RB 47 and DB Regio had operated it on the same route with class 628 diesel multiple units since 1994. It was also operated at 20-minute intervals, in the evenings and on weekends, every 30 minutes.[1]

Line S 7 runs over lines built by two railway companies:

There was an earlier line S 7 operated by DB Regio, which began at Düsseldorf Airport Terminal station. From there it ran south to Solingen Hbf via Düsseldorf Hbf. With the change to the 2010 timetable on 13 December 2009, line S1 replaced the service between Düsseldorf Hbf and Solingen. The S11 was extended to run to Düsseldorf Airport Terminal station.
