“Remastered” Footage of the “Flying Train” Ride Shows Germany in 1902

The footage is from a proprietary 68 mm film taken in a suspended railway at the Barmen-Elberfeld area in Germany. Denis Shiryaev hailed from Poland and is part of the Neural Love Agency as an AI specialist. He turned the two-minute black and white recording into a 4-minute colored video. He stabilized the footage, smoothed out the rough edges, added sounds, and music. The result is mind-blowing and amazing.

It is like going on a trip in a time machine to the past, specifically in Germany, in 1902. It is a simpler time back then.

The technology was still in its infancy. People, houses, and buildings weren’t that many. World Wars hadn’t happened yet, and Germany was still a viable country.
