If you get or even we ever get the chance to travel to Germany again. 3 things to do all get at able by Train, Wuppertal, Bad Doberan (puffers through the Street) and the Harz Mountains.Ever since I saw the iconic photo of the line over the river, on the front of my brother's Mechano Magazine as a nipper, I have been fascinated by this line - but I have never traveled to Germany; dunno why
What about Zittau, Oschatz/Mugeln and Radebuel all easily accessible by train?If you get or even we ever get the chance to travel to Germany again. 3 things to do all get at able by Train, Wuppertal, Bad Doberan (puffers through the Street) and the Harz Mountains.
Sorry, I hope it isn't thought I was anything but praising the film. It is a definition the Things To Do list. We passed it a couple of years ago and I said to my wife we're coming back at some point!I can't see how colourisation does anything but enhance the experience. I am lucky enough to have travelled on the Schwebe Bahn and I still think it is a technological marvel. It is remarkable how peaceful things seem to be in Wuppertal as the train glides overhead.
I think the definition may be somewhat blurred. IMHO if they run on Rails that is certainly a link and the SB is suspended on wheels that run on a Single Rail or Railway. I doubt anyone from Ireland or indeed France would thank you for not thinking of the Lartigue Monorail as anything but of the Railway type. Though certainly Cable Ways and Maglev are a grey area.Personally, I don't consider Aerial Cableways, Monorails, Maglev, and other funny systems of similar elk, to be 'real railways'.

Indeed and the PSRT used a Rail as well. Seen it at the Delhi Museum but sadly was not running on the day we visited. In the pic below you can see why it was not running. For those that have never seen it there is a central rail and the big wheel on the outside (viewed in the pictures) runs on pretty well any surface. At the museum there is a Concrete Pad for theat big wheel to give a nice rids but what it must have been like on rough countryside Indian rights of way is best left to the imagination.Quaint, in its own sort of way. Even worth a look, but not a 'real' railway, as we know it.
Of course, there is the Pateala State Monorail Tramway in India..... somewhat more akin to a Traction Engine, wouldn't you say.
