Building site at Kupferhammer

This photo shows why the U3 line in Oberursel had to be partially closed last week.  The factory buildings at the “Kupferhammer” were being demolished and part of the system that carries the overhead lines was fixed to one of the walls.

A view along the U3 with the remains of the factory to the left.

The factory, which even had its own siding from the days when goods were transported on the line (tram line 24), was known as the “Lumpensortieranstalt Berger” and later as the “Jandorf-Fabrik”.
