Amazing! I was thinking the cars would be laying all over the place on the first curve. Any detailed pictures of the mechanism?

Michael,

Where are you posting the pictures? Am I missing something? I have ridden the Mannheim to Munich route before. I have done it by the Inter City (IC) and Inter City Express (ICE) trains.

Thanks,
Mike

Ingenious really.
So what your saying is the cars are really close together going straight and move apart during curves and then go back after the curve ends?

Amazing, especially considering the weight of the cars! Really ingenious!
