The Berlin North-South main line, also called the North-South link called, is a railway line in Berlin, which was opened in 2006. It is an electrified line that is an important component of the "mushroom concept" adopted for long-distance and regional rail services through the city. Its core is an approximately 3.5 km long tunnel under the Tiergarten in Berlin. The tunnel section includes the underground level of the Berlin central station and the Potsdamer Platz regional station. The above-ground section of the line includes the Berlin S dkreuz station. The line is a four-track connection between the Ringbahn in the north of Berlin via the Berlin Hauptbahnhof to S dkreuz and the Anhalt Railway in the south. North of the Hauptbahnhof the line divides into two double-track lines. One of them runs east, the other west, both running on to the Ring line. The tunnel and the connecting to the northeast are entirely new lines. The connection from the tunnel to the north-west to Moabit follows the course of the Lehrter railway. The southern section runs above ground through the former yards of the Anhalt Railway.
