  • Martin Donat

    Here at the old Loher train station starts a short rail route that has been preserved and on which you can experience a trolley ride in summer. You can find information here: nordbahntrasse.de/draisine/anfahrt

    The former station Loh is located on the Nordbahntrasse in the district of Loh with the possibility to drive up / down on Buchenstrasse or Rudolfstrasse. In the immediate vicinity or diagonally opposite is the Cafe Tacheles, a rustic Cafe, which invites you to linger. Furthermore, you have the possibility to drive a piece with a trolley on the existing rails at the former station itself.

    Here cyclists can take a break. Here you have the opportunity to relax a little either in the sun or protected under a rain cover. Drinks or a delicious cake are available in the old station building. The entrance is on the other side of the building

    Here is one of the most interesting gardens in Bergisch. There are many bizarre things to discover. If you are in the mood for skew, take a break.

    Simply wonderful to cycle past Wuppertal. The view of the city from above was great. The entire tunnel is also a highlight.

    A very nice route. From Vohwinkel to Wichlinghaunsen it is a flat route, after that there is a section of the route that continues to climb but is still very manageable

    Railway station in the urban area of the then independent city of Barmen. After the construction of the Rhine route, the stop was initially called “Unter-Barmen”. The station on the BME valley line of the same name did not exist at that time (this also applied to Wichlinghausen, which was initially called “Ober-Barmen” and the station in the valley was initially called Rittershausen until 1930). The name was later changed, but always with the addition “Barmen” or from 1930 “Wuppertal”, because the Schwelm-Loh train station was further east on the same line! Perhaps a bit confusing the many names, but of course that had nothing to do with the function of the station, which was quite pronounced. Because here, in addition to the passenger wing, there was also a goods area and later the rail connection to the slaughterhouse station of the city (werke), initially called “Kleinbahn Loh - Hatzfeld”. Therefore, a number of wagons had to be relocated here, whereby the state railway locomotives brought the freight wagons the few kilometers to the slaughterhouse station, and this until the closure of the connection at the beginning of 1980. A special pillar here was later the coal transport, because after the goods were reloaded in the bucket elevator, this cargo was then transported further on the tram line, especially to the power station on Clef (right next to the BME line near Barmen station, where until 1931 there was a direct, unfortunate rail connection from the long-distance track). Furthermore, there was a siding from Bf. Loh to the “Clausen” area with several rail customers. Anyone who researches this area closely and is looking for a project for his mini-train as a model railroader will find a great and productive model in Wuppertal-Loh station, which would also offer a huge variety of landscapes with viaducts and tunnels in the immediate vicinity, with urban development and green spaces !

    The Nordbahntrasse in Wuppertal is an approximately 22 km long, wide footpath, cycle path and inline skater path on the former railway lines 2423 (Rhenish line) and 2713 (coal railway). It runs on a west-east axis along the northern slope of the Wuppertal urban area. The Nordbahntrasse is the longest inner-city former railway line in the world. The route includes bridges and viaducts with a total length of one and a half kilometers and five tunnels with a total length of two kilometers. The route passes numerous testimonies to Wuppertal's industrial and transport history, residential areas, monuments and geological features,[1] which are described on around 90 accompanying boards.Wuppertal can be challenging for cyclists because of its narrow valley and steep slopes. With the continuous and mostly level Nordbahn route, a spacious alternative route that is significant in terms of urban planning was created for the first time, with more than 100,000 people living in the immediate catchment area of one kilometer on both sides of the route. Numerous schools and public institutions are located in the vicinity of the route with the city centers of Elberfeld and Barmen and can therefore be reached at any time via the footpath and cycle path.The Nordbahntrasse connects Wuppertal to the national network of cycle paths (corkscrew route and Niederbergbahn in the west, Barmer Kohlenbahn in the east) and is part of the Bergisch Panorama Cycle Path.[2] The ten kilometers of the route, which lead through inner-city areas, are six meters wide and illuminated at night. In the outskirts of the city, the route is three and a half to four meters wide.
