The Wuppertaler Schwebebahn (Wuppertal Suspension Railway), nicknamed The Flying Train, is basically a suspension railway in Wuppertal, Germany. It’s the world’s oldest electric elevated railway with hanging cars and was built between 1897 and 1903. The first track opened in 1901, and to this day, Schwebebahn is still in use as a normal means of local public transport, transporting 25 million passengers annually.

The train runs along an 8.3-mile route at a height of about 39-feet above the River Wupper between Oberbarmen and Sonnborner Straße. At one point during the trip, the railway crosses the A46 motorway. The entire trip takes about 30 minutes and operates within the VRR transport association, thus accepting tickets issued by the VRR companies.
