Gevelsberg Hauptbahnhof is a railway station in the municipality of Gevelsberg in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The station was opened along with a section of the Düsseldorf-Derendorf–Dortmund Süd railway, opened by the Rhenish Railway Company (, RhE) between Wuppertal-Wichlinghausen and Hagen RhE station (now Hagen-Eckesey depot) on 15 September 1879. It has two platform tracks and it is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 6 station. It is the only Hauptbahnhof in Germany, which in fact is not a Bahnhof, but a Haltepunkt ("halt", defined in Germany as having no sets of points). Together with Remscheid Hauptbahnhof it is also the only Hauptbahnhof, which is served by S-Bahns only.

Operational usage

The station is served by Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn lines S 8 between Mönchengladbach and Hagen twice an hour (with intervals of 20 and 40 minutes alternatively). The station along with Remscheid Hauptbahnhof are the only Hauptbahnhofs in Germany that are served exclusively by S-Bahn trains. This is because Gevelsberg as a municipality is a relatively recent creation, and traditionally Ennepetal (Gevelsberg) on the direct line from Wuppertal to Hagen carries most of the regional and mid-distance traffic for Ennepetal and Gevelsberg. Whilst Gevelsberg Hbf therefore is more central to Gevelsberg, it does not offer any connections other than the S8 trains running twice an hour, making it one of the least busy Hauptbahnhof stations in Germany.
The station is also served by the follow bus services:
