The car is either winched up to the station on the top of the incline where the cable is collected on a winch drum, or the single car is balanced by a counterweight and operated the same way as a funicular with two cars. Many inclined lifts were constructed along the pressure lines of storage power plants for transporting building materials. Examples are the ''Gelmerbahn'' leading to the Gelmersee and the ''Funicolare Piora–Ritom'' leading to Lago Ritom, both in Switzerland. The steepest funicular in the world may be the incline lift Katoomba Scenic Railway in Australia Wikipedia:Dallas, Texas Dmoz:Regional North America United States Texas Localities D Dallas commons:Dallas, Texas


Turin

and very fast automobile built on a racing chassis. The car was never fully developed and the cost of sending chassis from England to Italy and back for final assembly made it so expensive that only a few were produced. Production ended in 1973 after only 80 cars (29 convertibles and 51 coupes) were finished. In 1970, a special version of the coupé was built. It was based on an extended bodyshell that Frua built for Monteverdi (Monteverdi (car)) which was supposed to become the second ''Monteverdi 375 L''. After the alliance of Monteverdi and Frua split off in Summer 1969, that bodyshell remained in the Frua works in Turin. A year or so later Frua changed some details on front and rear, including some semi-hidden headlamps which had been seen on the ''Iso Lele'' and the ''Iso Grifo'', second series, before. The car was called AC 429; it remained a one-off. It still exists. WikiPedia:Turin Dmoz:Regional Europe Italy Regions Piedmont Localities Turin Commons:Category:Turin

Railways Lacking a technological base at first, the Germans imported their engineering and hardware from Britain, but quickly learned the skills needed to operate and expand the railways. In many cities, the new railway shops were the centres of technological awareness and training, so that by 1850, Germany was self-sufficient in meeting the demands of railroad construction, and the railways were a major impetus for the growth of the new steel industry. However, German unification in 1870 stimulated consolidation, nationalisation into state-owned companies, and further rapid growth. Unlike the situation in France, the goal was support of industrialisation, and so heavy lines crisscrossed the Ruhr and other industrial districts, and provided good connections to the major ports of Hamburg and Bremen. By 1880, Germany had 9,400 locomotives pulling 43,000 passengers and 30,000 tons of freight, and forged ahead of France Allan Mitchell, ''Great Train Race: Railways and the Franco-German Rivalry, 1815–1914'' (2000) thumb left Krupp (File:Essen a54 v Stadtpanorama-1890.jpg) Works in Essen, 1890 In 1702, following his father's wishes, Handel started studying law under Christian Thomasius at the University of Halle; Commons:Category:Hamburg Wikipedia:Hamburg Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Hamburg


Bavaria

*1918 – Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany abdicates after the German Revolution (German Revolution of 1918–1919), and Germany is proclaimed a Republic. *1923 – In Munich, Germany, police and government troops crush the Beer Hall Putsch in Bavaria. The failed coup is the work of the Nazis. *1935 – The Congress of Industrial Organizations is founded in Atlantic City, New Jersey by eight trade unions belonging to the American Federation of Labor. The DAP was a comparatively small group with fewer than 60 members. Nevertheless, it attracted the attention of the German authorities, who were suspicious of any organisation that appeared to have subversive tendencies. A young corporal, Adolf Hitler, stationed in Munich, T. L. Jaman, ''The Rise and Fall of Nazi Germany'' (New York University Press, 1956), pg. 88 was sent by Captain Mayr (Karl Mayr), head of press and propaganda in the Bavarian section of the army, to investigate the DAP. Rees, Laurence, ''The Nazis - A Warning from History'' (BBC Books, 2 March 2006), pg. 21 While attending a party meeting on September 12, 1919, where Gottfried Feder was speaking on 'How and by what means is capitalism to be eliminated?', Hitler got involved in a heated political argument with a visitor who questioned the soundness of Feder's arguments and who proposed that Bavaria should break away from Prussia and found a new South German nation with Austria. In vehemently attacking the man's arguments he made an impression on the other party members with his oratory skills and, according to Hitler, the "professor" left the hall acknowledging unequivocal defeat. According to August Kubizek, Drexler was so impressed that he whispered to a neighbour, "My he's got a gift of the gab. We could use him." He was invited to join, and after some deliberation, chose to accept. Among the party's earlier members were Ernst Röhm of the Army's District Command VII; well-to-do journalist Dietrich Eckart; student at the University of Munich and later deputy of the party Rudolf Hess; The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich, Arrow Books Ltd (2 May 1991), p.43 ''Freikorps'' soldier Hans Frank; and Alfred Rosenberg, often credited as the philosopher of the movement. All of the above were later prominent in the Nazi regime. ref name "RisenFallofN.Germanypg
