Deutsche Bahn DB Regio RE1 Regional-Express Train from Berlin Hauptbahnhof to Potsdam Hauptbahnhof
DB Regio RE1 is a Regional-Express train plying between Cottbus and Magdeburg through Berlin and Potsdam. Regional-Express trains in Berlin offers a faster journey through the city and also extends to towns further out than the S-Bahn suburban network. For this trip to Potsdam, there was a fast RE1 train departing shortly, which will make my journey faster and more comfortable than the S-Bahn S7.
