    On December 1, 1909, Schalkenmehren was connected to the rail network with the opening of the Maare-Mosel Railway. The current station building was built in 1910/11. Since May 29, 1988, Schalkenmehren can no longer be reached by train. The 58 km long Maare-Mosel cycle path now runs from Daun via Wittlich to Bernkastel-Kues on the former railway line.
    At the station there is a small locomotive with an oil engine, called KÖ. It was built at Windhoff / Rheine in 1949, weighs 15 tons and reached a speed of 30 km / h with 130 HP. The KÖ was basically a shunting locomotive, but also took over the distribution of freight wagons on the route between Daun, Schalkenmehren and Gillenfeld. Sometimes she also pulled a passenger train. The locomotive, which is now at Schalkenmehren station, may be boarded and used.

    The train station Schalkenmehren is a very nice station that invites you to linger.

    For me the most beautiful former train station on the track. Still has a lot of his flair. Is today as a holiday home idea house to rent

    It is worth taking a little break here on the beautiful Maar-Mosel bike path. Seating is in the immediate vicinity of the locomotive.
