Funicular Railways - Old and New
« on: June 21, 2019, 02:46:28 AM »
Funicular Railways have always had an appeal. My first example was to be found long-ago in Grasse in Provence in the South of France.

When the PLM branch-line reached Grasse it found itself well below the centre of the city and passengers had to find their way up a steep hill into the centre. The Funicular was built to ease that journey.
