This is Dresden's 2nd Funicular, very close to the Schwebebahn near the Blue Wonder Bridge. Sadly during my Dresden visit the line was down for scheduled maintenance. Therefore I was unable to ride it :(.

This line is a very typical Funicular. 2 cars sharing the same trackway with a passing side mid-way.
