Tanks, Wagonload and Cartic type trains are most common with DB using class 152, 155 and 186 loco types. If you get lucky you may see a DB V100 with a Wagonload were as private operates can provide everything and anything.
Railway type and traffic
The station and surrounding area is very quiet but at the same time not intimidating in the slightest. The station itself is modern but basic with a couple of shelters on both the East and West platforms.
There is a small car park on the Potsdam bound platform side.
DB S bahn serve this station on the line between Berlin Ost and Potsdam via Schönefeld approximately every 30minutes.Click here to set up your location for directions to this location

Take pictures from the Potsdam bound platform. Sun favours you between approximately 11:00 to 18:00.
As freight uses the middle roads there is not too much of a problem with pictures. For shots coming from the West you are better off using the West end of the station.
There is a field to the East of the station you can use for photos too.
If filming be aware the car park is often used for motorcycle training.
