GTW 72 type motorcar No. 9 crossing a large intersection just before reaching the station "Alter Markt".
This station was extensively rebuilt in the 1960s, with the closely spaced support struts being replaced by an elaborate bridge construction, parts of which you can see in the background. The tracks are held up by steel cables attached to tall pylons, with the station building itself serving as counterweight. Theoretically, this gives you a long curve that isn't obstructed by any support struts, offering a clear view of the Schwebebahn. In practice, it's an intersection, with many traffic lights and signs. After taking some photos that were quite similar to some of my old ones, I switched positions and used these traffic lights as a frame for the train. Came out nice enough I think, and with the new trains partially in service, I just had to get some shots of the old 70s machines with their classic blue and yellow livery before they're all gone.
If you're interested, here are some photos of the reconstruction of this station, including this picture of a load test, performed by lining up GTW 50 type cars on the suspended section.
It's a pity that none of the 1950s cars were preserved, especially the two prototype articulated trains on which these current trainsets are based. They were given to a museum that has closed by now, and it was claimed that they were handed over to a different museum, but the people there don't know anything about this. Nobody knows where those cars ended up, so it may very well be possible that they were scrapped at some point.
You gave me a hard time to find out it's Wuppertal ... Now I feel like Sherlock Holmes ...
Sorry about that! x) It does say Wuppertal in the tags though...
Nicely framed mate!
