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