Between Zittau Stop und Zittau South (Süd) Station
In this special area (at km 1.65) you found the start of the ZOJE-track as the junction 'Zittau - Markersdorf line' and additional from 1900 the track to Hermsdorf in Bohemia. Corresponding to a treaty with the state railway the ZOJE was allowed to use the the track from this turnoff to Zittau. On the other hand the ZOJE had to post a switch man at this junction. For this switch man there was built a small half-timbered house, but that was pulled down in 1998. After shutdown the track to Markersdorf on June 1st , 1946 the junction wasn't used anymore. By February 1961 only a part of the old track was used by the slaughter house and the coal dealer Otto.
