    In the run-up to the Regionale 2006, consideration was given to how the route of the mountain railway, which was closed in 1959, could be made visible again in the Barmer facilities in order to remind of the means of transport opened in 1894. A competition brought six proposals and a jury selected the design proposal from the landscape architects Ipach and Dreisbusch from Neu-Isenburg and the American artist Matthias Alfen. He saw a ten-meter-wide strip on the former route being planted with birch trees, which should stand out from the forest with their white bark. A short cogwheel track was planned at the upper end. The cost was one million euros.However, this solution was criticized by the Barmer Beautification Association and therefore rejected - since the BVV is responsible for the maintenance of the area, it had a say. In 2006 the decision was made, also due to poor soil conditions for the birch trees, to erect 180 2.20 meter high steles, which were to be set up to the left and right of the route. 70% of the costs for the redesign of the entire area in the amount of 1.1 million euros were covered by regional 2006 funds. At the beginning of March 2007, the Stelenweg was finished - after a construction period of just under 6 months. The construction workers were often approached and criticized during the construction phase, as many citizens assumed that the 1.1 million euros would only be spent on the steles - these cost “only” 18,000 euros.Source: denkmal-wuppertal.de/2014/04/denkmal-zur-erinnerung-die.html
