The Heubruch station was the central Barmer station on the Rhenish route.It was located at 32.38 km on the REG line from Düsseldorf to Hagen and on to Dortmund (kilometer reading from D-Derendorf). It was the centrally located stop on the Rhine route in the city of Barmen and was accordingly referred to as Mittel-Barmen (spelling also in one word). A comparison to the Barmer central station on the BME line (later - probably from 1910 - the main train station) could not be withstood, both with regard to the old and new reception building there as well as the frequency of trains. However, it was initially planned in the planning to erect a representative reception building at the Heubruch train station. In the district there were a number of companies that meant or increased freight traffic. New businesses settled here with the construction of the railway. The operation of the building of the consumer cooperative “Vorwärts” in Münzstrasse, which is situated higher up on the northern slope, was extremely interesting, and a siding was laid in the basement of the building. Within the room, wagons were moved using a turntable. During the heavy bombing of Barmen in May 1943, the station area was affected and the reception building, built in Bergisch half-timbered or slate construction, was partially destroyed and later demolished. After the war there was always a temporary arrangement here and it was not very inviting.Source: bahnen-wuppertal.de/html/bahnhof-heubruch.html
