The former station building is constructed in brick-faced masonry, has gable roofs and a central hip roof and is covered with tar paper. The facade is divided by ornamental stonework as well as encircling cornices and lesene projections.
In the upper area of the central section of the building, stucco decorations are centred on a round window. On the left and right of the building there are bay-like extensions, which are also partly covered with decorative brickwork.
The original flat-arched windows have been replaced with some newer ones. The original design of the complex was the work of a departmental engineer of the Hanover-Altenbeken Railway Company Hannover-Altenbekener Eisenbahn-Gesellschaft , which had acquired the concession for the construction of the railway between Elze and Löhne. The main building, which had two-storeys and a basement, was He was a specialist in the construction of tobacco factories, among other things, at home and abroad.
In addition, he designed and built many prestigious villas built in the late Gründerzeit. After initial reservations, in most of the merchants in Vlotho supported a railway station in Vlotho on the Cologne-Minden Railway. For centuries, the Vlotho port on the Weser was a trading centre for the Ravensberger Land and for the Principality of Lippe and for freight traffic to and from Bremen and Thuringia.
They feared economic disadvantages from its decline because of changes that had already occurred and the coming changes to the infrastructure to roads and trails, as well as the increasing development of railways. Not long after, Vlotho supported the idea of a direct rail link from Minden via Vlotho to Paderborn.
The line that was eventually built was called the Löhne—Vienenburg line. During the construction of the Löhne—Hamelin line migrant workers from non-German speaking countries worked for the first time in the area; in Vlotho there were Poles.
Many residents were afraid that they would lose light and air as a result of the high embankment. During the construction of the freight depot, a house was destroyed by a landslide in On 30 June , the Löhne—Hamelin line was officially opened with its first passenger train.
All Vlotho notables were invited as guests of honour. The new line closed a gap between the Elze—Goslar line opened in and the Löhne—Osnabrück line opened in and was thus of importance for east-west traffic.
Interlockings were installed on the line in The line was duplicated in — The station building was extended in with the addition of an area of about square metres.
In , there were alterations to an area that was already used for apartments for rail workers. In the same year toilet facilities were installed in the building; these were made accessible from the station forecourt by an external staircase in The goods shed was extended in In the last days of the Second World War the railway bridge over the Weser river was attacked by Allied bombers, but it was not made impassable. On 3 April , when a panzer division was resisting advancing American troops in the area now called Exter , German pioneers attempted to impede the crossing of the Weser by blowing up the bridge.
In contrast to the nearby road bridge they only partially succeeded. During the postwar reconstruction, the rail link between the stations in Vlotho and Veltheim Porta Westfalica was reopened as a single track line in Although located near the Weser port, it had no direct connection from the station. Shortly before the First World War a separate track had been built to the boundary of the former Tintelnot sugar factory. After the war took traffic on the Elze—Löhne railway increased strongly because of the strong economic growth.
The nearby Veltheim community power station, which was established in , received a large proportion of its fuel by rail. Passenger services operated directly to and from Brunswick , Aachen and Mönchengladbach. The later gradually increasing shift of freight and passenger traffic from rail to road had consequences.
An average of 55 freight and 65 passenger trains passed through Vlotho station each day in , but by the average had fallen to three freight and 22 passenger trains. If you are a single guy, the chat line provides free trial for about thirty minutes a day.
