First hydrogen-powered trains for the Berlin-Brandenburg metropolitan region
Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn (NEB) provides local rail passenger mobility in the Berlin-Brandenburg region. The roots of the more than 120-year-old, richly traditional company lie in the region and are at the same time both aspiration and motivation for ensuring environmentally friendly connections between cities and rural areas. Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn-AG owns and operates the Heidekrautbahn network to the north of Berlin and plans to reactivate the Heidekrautbahn mainline (RB28) by 2024. As a railway company, NEB Betriebsgesellschaft mbH operates eleven regional railway lines in the north and east of Brandenburg on behalf of the Verkehrsverbundes Berlin-Brandenburg (VBB). In 2021, Niederbarnimer Eisenbahn was again awarded the contract to operate the Ostbrandenburg network (NOB2) until 2036 and the Heidekrautbahn network until 2034.
