Siemens second generation H-Bahn car cruises along low section
of track as it approaches a ground level station.
The H-Bahn system uses very slender supports and guideway.
This map is courtesy of the Dortmund
H-Bahn website. The dotted red line signifies the 1.2 km extension
to a science park under construction during the Spring of 2003.
A dark and rainy day didn't stop Amaury from documenting the new
line work for us!
Pylons are in place, guideway will follow soon.
Again, H-Bahn has very slender pylons. In fact, they're not much
more obtrusive than light or power poles.
The rain is kicking in now, so here's one last shot of new guideway
in place. Mobile work platforms suspended from the track are tarp-covered
to protect workers from the weather. Thanks Amaury for sharing
