Spend some time on a Monorail

Not going anywhere for a while? That’s right we’re all in Stay at Home status and looking for fun things to do to break the boredom cycle. How about this 10 hour long YouTube of a trip on the Wuppertal Suspended Monorail?

According to WikiPedia:
The Wuppertaler Schwebebahn (Wuppertal Suspension Railway) is a suspension railway in Wuppertal, Germany. It is the oldest electric elevated railway with hanging cars in the world and is a unique system. Designed by Eugen Langen to sell to the city of Berlin, the installation with elevated stations was built in Barmen, Elberfeld and Vohwinkel between 1897 and 1903; the first track opened in 1901. The Schwebebahn is still in use today as a normal means of local public transport, moving 25 million passengers annually (2008). The Schwebebahn runs along a route of 13.3 kilometres (8.3 mi), at a height of about 12 metres (39 ft) above the River Wupper between Oberbarmen and Sonnborner Straße. The entire trip takes about 30 minutes.
