Remarks & Notes 
This tiny cog wheel railroad is water powered. Two cars operated opposite each other. The car at the top of the Nero Berg has it's hopper is filled with water. The bottom car's hopper is empty. The heavier top car pulls the lighter bottom car up the hill. Upon arrival, the former top car's hopper is drained and the former bottom car's hopper is filled. The train runs every 15 minutes. They use a unique passing track at the midpoint of the line.
