Wuppertal-Oberbarmen. Shortly before the dismantling and renewal of the suspension monorail terminus began

The station and the train shed will soon be replaced with new structures which will look pretty much like the old ones.

This is part of a huge renovation project which started in 1995. The complete infrastructure of the 13.3 km long monorail line had to be replaced after 100 years of service. About 95% of this undertaking have already been finished. As of July 2012 the dismantling and reconstruction of the eastern terminus of the line has begun. This includes the renewal of the train shed with the storage sidings. The shed will be replaced by a modern construction which will be designed more or less in the traditional style. It will be much longer than the existing hall.
