Lehrter Railway Station (S Bahn), Berlin, Germany.

Berlin’s Lehrter Railway Station has been in operation since 1882 serving the suburban and freight trains passing the city in east – west direction. In 1930 the rail system was converted to the operation of a light rail system on the S-Bahn and thus became the Lehrter Bahnhof S-Bahn station.  During the period of East Germany, the station lost much of it’s importance as it was now in East Germany divided by the wall. In 1984 the station was transferred to the S Bahn to the West.  This landmark station remains even today in it’s original condition.
