Wuppertal Schwebebahn in Postcards
another Monorail Society Exclusive!

The famous Tuffi the elephant incident. Tuffi survived and performed in the circus the same day. No one actually captured the incident on film the moment of her panicked jump, the center picture is doctored.
Oops. Luckily no train was in the area. Supports now have barriers around them.
When originally built, the Schwebebahn only had horse and buggy traffic here.
Modern stations are replacing the historic ones. Some preservationists wish otherwise.
As with many transit systems, advertising has been added to the trains.
The Kaiserwagon still runs, one hundred years later! No problem with snow either.
