The Uckro – Dahme railway was a branch line in Brandenburg that was originally built and operated by the Dahme-Uckroer Eisenbahn AG . It branched off the Berlin – Dresden railway line in Uckro and led to Dahme .
The Dahme-Uckroer Eisenbahn AG was founded on October 21, 1884. The province of Brandenburg , the districts of Luckau and Jüterbog-Luckenwalde and the city of Dahme participated in the capital ; however, more than half came from private donors. The purpose of the railway construction was to connect the city of Dahme to the main line Berlin – Dresden . This happened at the Uckro-Luckau station, which was later called Uckro and is now called Luckau- Uckro .
The 12.5-kilometer route in Niedere Fläming was opened on July 31, 1886. An extension of the line from Dahme via Schönewalde , Holzdorf , Schweinitz to Jessen (Elster) , the general preparatory work of which was approved in 1919, was not carried out. However, both passenger and freight transport did not meet the initial expectations of society. From May 15, 1935, a power bus had to be used parallel to the rails in order to make operations more profitable. This goal was also served by the decision to have the management work done by the Brandenburg State Transport Authority - the railway department of the Brandenburg province - in Potsdam .
During the Second World War, the number of journeys rose, but the omnibus had to be discontinued from May 1, 1942 due to the allocation of liquid fuels. After the end of the war, the railway was initially subordinated to the Mark Brandenburg Provincial Railways and from April 1, 1949 to the Deutsche Reichsbahn .
The cessation of travel took place on January 3, 1968, the freight traffic and thus the complete shutdown on December 31, 1993.
