Entering the Works (1)

Taken during a Railtrail tour in Germany. Apart from one in a German theme park, this is the only public suspended monorail in the world. More information in the Schwebebahn Wuppertal on Wikipedia.

 

This shows a train entering the works at the western terminus, Vohwinkel. There is a points system in the overhead monorail which allows the train to either turn for the return journey or divert into the garage.
