Dreieich-Buchschlag station is a railway station on the Rhine-Main S-Bahn in the town of Dreieich in the German state of Hesse. It was opened in 1879 on the Main-Neckar Railway. The station is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 4 station.[1]

History[edit]

The station was opened in 1879 with the name of Buchschlag-Sprendlingen on the Main-Neckar Railway line. It opened up a forest district in the municipality of Mitteldick. In order to stimulate the development of the surrounding communities, it was decided on 1 April 1905 to build the Dreieich Railway (Dreieichbahn) between Buchschlag-Sprendlingen and Ober-Roden. Buchschlag-Sprendlingen station was renamed Dreieich-Buchschlag on 1 January 1977.

Location[edit]

The station is located on the western edge of Buchschlag on Buchschlager Allee (continuing to the west as Wald am Mitteldicker Weg) on the Main-Neckar Railway, connecting Frankfurt and Heidelberg. Shortly south of the station, the Dreieich Railway branches off to Rödermark-Ober Roden.

Connections[edit]

Today, the station is in the territory of the Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (Rhine-Main Transport Association, RMV), with S-Bahn services operated by the Rhine-Main S-Bahn and regional services operated by Deutsche Bahn. In addition, it has two bus stops, a taxi stand and park and ride facility.

Infrastructure[edit]

The entrance building of Dreieich-Buchschlag station has been sold off and now houses a restaurant. There is still a sign reading Buchschlag-Sprendlingen on the station building.

Immediately next to the entrance building, there are 5 tracks passing over a level crossing over Buchschlager Allee. Since many trains pass over the crossing, the barriers sometimes remain closed for a long time.

Public transport services[edit]

Rail[edit]

The station is served by the Rhine-Main S-Bahn and DB Regio services.

S-Bahn lines S 3 and S 4 each stop at the station every half-hour on weekdays, which together provide services every 15-minute. On Sundays, both lines operate every hour, together providing a service every half-hour. The Regionalbahn RB 61 service (Dreieich Railway) runs from Monday to Friday three times in the morning from Dieburg to Frankfurt and three times in the afternoon from Frankfurt to Dieburg on the line, stopping in Dreieich-Buchschlag and Neu-Isenburg.[2]

Bus[edit]

Some bus routes stop at the station, including city bus line OF-64. During the summer months (May 1 to September/October) each year, Waldseebus (OF-Line 65) runs to and from Langener Waldsee, a popular Baggersee (lake established in an abandoned quarry) used as part of the Ironman Germany triathlon competition.
