For the most part, the Schwebebahn follows the small river Wupper, the only place in the town where there was actually enough space to build a new transit system, but the final part from Zoo/Stadion
instead runs over the road and uses a different kind of pillar.
We (that is,
and me) met another guy taking pictures of the Schwebebahn at Vohwinkel
, who told us about his Schwebebahn website
(go check it out, it's neat and both english and german. By the way, I need to print some business cards myself) and also about this photo point (the Plus parking space near Bruch station). If you read this, thank you again!
In my opinion, this part is the most fun part of the line, as you easily float over the cars standing down there waiting for green traffic lights. By the way: At each pillar, there are signs stating that you must not do any large delivery or other things that need a crane without consulting the Schwebebahn agency first. There was a serious accident (one injured) in 2008 when a crane driver ignored this...On my homepageBy the way, you can freely use the image for absolutely any purpose, but only if you read and follow the Creative Commons license which is linked to right under the image. It's a short read and in my opinion very fair, but if you think it's too restrictive for your plan, send me a note with what you want to do and I'll probably allow it. And the same goes for all my other photographs as well.
