    Once at Heidelberg Castle I was surprised to find a Funicular (Bergbahn) Railway within the walls. Out tour walked up to the Castle but I understand this is something "modern" that was installed for those that can't make the climb by foot

    I didn't realize there was a funicular in Heidelberg. Our guide didn't mention it when we were there in 1998. I would have loved to have seen it.

    Am trying to figure out what the cars are here. Looks like this one is carrying some sort of metal sheet? Or?

    Some sort of enclosed rolling stock. But what commodity? Can't really tell the car size from this photo.

    Unfortunately we traveled past it so fast that was as good of a photo as I could catch...

    Attractive cars, but the loco looks like a brick with traction motors.

    Their version of a "Superliner" style car?

    Here is the short video clip those shots came from. I found allot of the engines looked like a "box" and many of these seemed to be just their normal way of getting around from town to town
