Wuppertal, Germany Schwebebahn: the flying train

From: Film at MoMA
"The Flying Train" depicts a ride on a suspended railway in Germany in 1902. The footage is almost as impressive as the feat of engineering it captures.
Built to make use of otherwise dead space in a city, the trains run above existing roads and rivers with only the slender struts and stations entryways taking up space on the ground.

Built in 1901, the train is still running today:

Rainspotting

An 84-Hour Bikepacking Ramble.

Leaving the Sleeper Train at the highest, remotest station on the West Highland Line, a group of cyclists head off on an opportunistic wintry journey to ride the old-established network of gravel drove roads.

Should we be building HS2?

An interesting short documentary about the logical reasoning behind building HS2. A railway engineer clearly explains what's going on and addresses many of the contentious points, such the environmental impact, using actual data. It's not about the saving a few minutes that the media bang on about. It's about a lot more. It's also interesting to hear how it will free up existing capacity and affect places far from the line, the example mentioned being Aberystwyth.
