History edit

Originally the JSC Primorskaya Saint Peterburg–Sestroretsk railway was constructed as Shunting loop 2 verst. This shunting loop was opened on July 12, 1894, concurrent with the opening of the railway between Novaya Derevnya and Lakhta (the first stage of the Primorskaya line).[1]

On September 23, 1924, the shunting loop was seriously damaged during the catastrophic flooding. After the flood, the shunting loop was dismantled, and by 1925 did not exist anymore.[1][2]

In the 1980s, housing construction began in the area. The current station was built to serve the residents. The station was named "13th km" until February 1999 when it was renamed "Yakhtennaya", after the street on which is built.
