At the beginning of the 20th century the city was running out of the space to bury the beloved dead and hence, the cemeteries were moved outside the city. This made it quite expensive to transport the dead and relatives and hence, railway line from the city to the cemeteries was turned into action with efficient connection with the name as Friedhofsbahn – Cemetery Train. The Prussian and The Berlin city Synod Railway Administration worked out a contract where the church would do the land provision and stem the building cost of line while the administration takes care of maintenance of the line.

The Berlin wall is quite famous with construction on August 13 in 1961 the S-Bahn service and the entire train was stopped. At this very point Dreilinden was known as Checkpoint Bravo which is one of the 3-allied control points that divided Berlin and Germany. Both the West Germany and East slowly started dismantling the tracks in the 1970s.

The bridge which spanned the Teltowkanal was destroyed during the Second World War with putting a temporary end to the services to Stahnsdorf but the service continued to operate from Wannsee to Dreilinden. Bridge reconstruction caused regular service resume in 1948 that lasted until 1952 when the last cemetery train rolled. This is quite an interesting place among the other lost places Berlin.
