Die Wuppertaler Schwebebahn

The suspension railway is the most important personal local traffic system in Wuppertal, and at the same time the landmark of the town. It was the alternative at that time to an underground which could not be built in Wuppertal for geologic and topografischen reasons, therefore, the inhabitant of Cologne sugar manufacturer Eugene Langen got the possibility to realise his invention in Wuppertal.
Also the name "Suspension railway" comes from long themselves: „A system of the hanging carriages. "I have the thing‚ suspension railway‘ baptised. "“ such a quotation. Besides, the name Suspension railway is actually wrong because in contrast to a magnet suspension railway a constant contact exists between rail and vehicle. The Wuppertaler suspension railway is therefore an onerail overhead conveyor.
In 1995 one began in Wuppertal with a renewal project of the props, rails and stations and also the vehicles. The complete object was renewed as well as was altered up to three all stops and was modernised technically. On the from the 3rd to the 6th of April, 2014 one celebrated the official end of the removal. Since the 26th of May, 1997 the Wuppertaler suspension railway stands under conservation of monuments and historic buildings.
