U3 partially replaced by buses on Saturday

The U-Bahn line U3 will only operate as far as Kupferhammer on Saturday, 16th November and 23rd November, 2013 between 8am and 4pm to allow for work on the trees to take place.

Between Kupferhammer and Hohemark a replacement bus service will be in operation.

The temporary end of the U3 line during works on the level crossing

The Kupferhammerweg became the end of the line for a weekend during works on the level crossing across the Hohemarkstraße.

Trains terminated at Kupferhammer from where a minibus service connected with the stations “Rosengärtchen”, “Waldlust” and “Hohemark”.

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.

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”.
