    Since November 13, 2008 is a restored rail bus type VT 95, which was used in the past on the Burgholztrasse, on a part of the operating parking lot of Cronenberg tool company Knipex, directly adjacent to the former course of the track.

    The samba street
    The altogether 11 km long Sambatrasse connected between 1891 and 1988 today's districts Cronenberg and Elberfeld and served both the goods and the passenger traffic. The name is due to the swaying and swaying in the curves, which led to a particularly rhythmic driving feel. The cause for this was the long axle stand of the cars. As part of the Regional 2006, the old railway line was expanded to a cycling and walking path. The artworks on the edge of the route are supposed to create a connection between emotions, forest history and art in the forest under the title "WaldOrte" and in the course of time grow together - at least figuratively.

    The Burgholzbahn was an eleven km single-track railway line between Elberfeld and Cronenberg. The rocking of the cars in the numerous curves gave the route the name "Samba". In 1988 the railway line was closed. A VT 95 rail bus has been on an adjacent site since 2008.

    Where did the samba lane get its name from?
    The rocking on the winding route reminded many of the passengers of the Brazilian samba dance
