Niederglatt was the junction for the former Niederglatt-Otelfingen railway line, which once connected with Otelfingen station on the Furttal line but closed to through trains in 1937. The first 6.5 kilometres (4.0 mi) of the line, from Niederglatt as far as the Tanklager Mettmenhasli, has been retained as a siding, and joins the main line just to the south of the station.[3]
