I came this weekend through Wuppertal, Germany. They have a aerial tramway in the city. I took some photo's but they're not worth posting. But take a look at this website, there is some info of the old days of the tramway: http://www.schwebebahn-wtal.de/schwebebahn-alt.html
Herb: You're right about that 1st photo which is strangely instantly semi-recognisable to me. Possibly Ireland (Eire, the Free State) - County Donegal Railways went in for 'money saving' contraptions like that, as did several other impoverished Companies.
I think I also recognise 1 or 2 Italian contraptions judging by their bodywork style.
To whom may be in possession of info: usually I post whatever I have/know about 'em rascals, but if somebody knows anything else please post it.
Alwin: I have a few pics of the Wuppertal system, but none of the older cars or construction era. Thanks!.
Michael: I believe the first one (Ford T) is a County Donegal, but not sure.

That top pic is from the Kent and East Sussex line and is pictured at Roveldon this is the line I am modeling in 4mm scale. I have a etch brass kit of this from wosely works here in the uk he does it in uk 0 gauge and I'm sure he can reduce it to 1:48 scale.
