Die Wuppertaler Schwebebahn. A short video (2m 37s) featuring the Schwebebahn – the suspended overhead railway – in the German town of Wuppertal, about 40km NNE of Cologne [Köln]. Now using quite modern rolling stock, the Schwebebahn has been running since 1901 and remains an essential part of Wuppertal's transport system, carrying some 85,000 passengers a day with only a few of them being tourists and trainspotters. Much of the route is built over the river, as you can see in the video.
Note that the embedded video above is heavily compressed by Vimeo; it's far better to view it on the Vimeo site.
