Winterthur Seen railway station
|Opened||4 May 1875|
Winterthur Seen railway station (German: Bahnhof Winterthur Seen) is a railway station that serves Seen, which is district number 3 in Winterthur, a city in the canton of Zurich, Switzerland. It forms part of the Tösstalbahn section between Winterthur Grüze and Bauma.
Situated at the north eastern edge of central Seen, the station borders the quarter of Sonnenberg, on the other side of the tracks.
The station was opened on 4 May 1875, together with the rest of the first section of the Tösstalbahn, between Grüze and Bauma. One year later, the line was extended to Wald.
From 1882, the operating railway company also had a line of its own to Winterthur Hauptbahnhof.
On 10 June 1918, the station and the rest of the line were nationalized, and came under the control of the SBB-CFF-FFS.
