Years ago there had been a discussion about closing the trolley lines, but then they decides to continue.

It's a matter of space, there is not enough space for a loop.
For more explanation watch the video if you like to:

Some interesting photos of a tunnel section built for Stadtbahn but now used by tram because the Stadtbahn line is not completed till today.
This tunnel is used by the tram of Mülheim (1000 mm gauge) and the tram of Duisburg (1435 mm gauge). It is located in Mülheim.

Station Schloß Broich – you can see the different train control systems, Duisburg's tram uses LZB (continuous train protection), between the rails the LZB cable can be seen. Mülheim's tram uses Indusi (point-wise, inductive train protection). At the end of the platform, between the rails, the Indusi inductor (trackside magnet) can be seen:



Same stretch, station Mülheim-Stadtmitte:



Mülheim-Stadtmitte with tram (1000 mm gauge) – Mülheim's 1000 mm gauge trams are broader than Duisburg's 1435 mm gauge, 2,3 m vs. 2,2 m:

The new S-Bahn seems like a facelift only to me. Is there a significant difference to the older ET425?
