German officials reopened a two-mile section of railroad Saturday that was closed after the Berlin Wall's construction 41 years ago, reported AP World.
The rail opening, which commenced passenger service on Sunday, completed efforts to reunify the capital's transport network more than a decade after the city was reunited.
Berlin Mayor Klaus Wowereit joined federal government and railroad representatives at a ceremony marking the return to service of the last part of a commuter railway line that circles downtown Berlin, said the news service.
Berlin's transport network was abruptly cut in two when communist East Germany sealed the border on Aug. 13, 1961 to stop a drain of people across the frontier in the city. It has gradually been restored since German reunification in 1990.
