Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Hamm-Warburg Railway is a 131 km long main line railway in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It is part of an east-west line, known as the Mid-Germany Connection, and is served by InterCity trains between the Ruhr and Kassel, Erfurt and Berlin. In addition, there are dense freight and regional services. The line was opened between 1850 and 1853 and is one of the oldest railways in Germany. The most important stops are in Soest, Lippstadt and Paderborn. Altenbeken station is also a major point for train connections. In Warburg the line connects with the line to Kassel. Between Hamm and Paderborn the track allows speeds of up to 200 km/h. The line from Hamm to Paderborn is relatively flat as it runs through the southern Westphalian Lowland to the east. It runs roughly parallel to the Lippe river and the historic Hellweg, the precursor of highway B 1. In Soest, it is joined by the line from Hagen. From there it goes on via Bad Sassendorf, Lippstadt, Geseke and Salzkotten to Paderborn.show more
