Gdańsk Nowe Szkoty railway station
|Operated by||SKM (Tricity)|
|Line(s)||No passenger service|
|Previous names||Danzig Neuschottland (until 1945)|
This line is now used only for freight transport. However, the halt was re-opened for a short time in November 2006 due to the renovation of the preceding SKM stop.
The stop is connected with Gdańsk Politechnika stop. The platforms were almost parallel and it took few seconds to move from one to another. Right now the platform and former ticket office is devastated and its condition is getting worse every day.
The line connecting Gdańsk Główny (Danzig Hbf.) with Gdańsk Nowy Port (Danzig Neufahrwasser) was opened in October 1867. It had been electrified in 1951, but the voltage was changed (from 800 V) into standard 3kV in 1973. The line served mostly as the transport route for shipyard workers who commuted to the Gdańsk Shipyard. On December 15, 2002 the line was shortened to reach only Gdańsk Brzeźno. On June 25, 2005 the line was completely closed for passenger service.
