Gangloff is the leader of funicular bodywork shop since the 30s. Gangloff built the bodywork shop of some of the latest funiculars:
• CairnGorms (Scotland),
• Gurtenbahn (Bern, Switzerland),
• Bien - Macolin (Switzerland),
• Haifa (Israel),
• Moléson (Switzerland),
• Hakone (Japan),
• etc...

On 7th October 2002 I visited the workshop where the carriages of two funiculars were under construction:
• The Davos Parsenn first section new carriages.
• The Bergen Fløibanen new carriages.

Here are some photos of the new carriages before their imminent delivery!
