=== UPDATE 2016-06-24 ===

Should work with Metro Overhaul Mod (MOM) now

First of all, this is my first ever asset and it took me 6 months and over 200 hours to complete. Along the way, I’ve learned how to do 3d modeling, texturing and bringing things together in the asset editor. So, if you have a dream to build something that is not yet in Cities Skylines, it can be done!

Berlin Hauptbahnhof is the most important passenger train station in Berlin and also the largest tower station in Europe. With more than 300,000 travelers each day, it’s number four of the most frequently used long distance stations of Deutsche Bahn, right after Hamburg, Munich and Frankfurt (Main).

The crossing station with 14 platform tracks is a transfer point between passenger long-distance (Intercity-Express, Intercity/EuroCity, HBX, EuroNight) and short-distance (S-Bahn, Regionalbahn, Regional-Express) transport.

The connection to the Berlin underground through the station with the same name, which is currently the endpoint of line U55 to Brandenburg Gate, will be the western extension of U5 to Alexanderplatz when becoming operational as planned in 2019. More connections to public transport are available in front of the station with inner city bus, as well as tram services (line M5, M8 and M10).

The striking building was designed by architect Meinhard von Gerkan. Together with the station, a new north-south train path through the north-south long distance train service tunnel was put into operation on 28th May 2006, resulting in a complete conversion and reorganization of passenger train travel in Berlin following the so called "Pilzkonzept" (mushroom concept).
