Currently I'm roughing it in the south of France, and today hired a car and went from Menton to Sospel. On the way I passed a bizarre viaduct, just like the ones you see on improbable 009 layouts: well, just to prove that truth is stranger than fiction: https://translate.google.fr/translate?hl=en&sl=it&u=http://www.clamfer.it/10_Tram/MentonSospel/MentonSospel.htm&prev=search

The road is properly steep so electric traction was probably the only way. Hats off to all the engineers and labourers -it's a remarkable achievement...

Loaded up for me, a fantastic line, amazed at the concrete structures. Many thanks for posting.

Charming link.
Puts trolleys into a different perspective for me. Much more than urban transport.
Bon voyage!
