  1. Interesting change, good to see that the funicular is fit for the future.
    But I prefered the old cars. This funicular is not a real public transport but more a tourist attraction. It is the same than replacing a steam train by a Stadler “Flirt”
    These cars look really similar to a lot of other cars on other lines.
    I will also miss the counterweight system. Do you know how they will handle the difference in weight between the 2 cars? (With the rope length)
    I will have to try the new version, and we will see how it really is!

  2. Hello Sebastien…. thank you for your comment.
    I agree with you…
    It is nice to see that the funicular will be saved…
    The new cars are great and up to date concerning the new security requirements but I regret that for a private tourist attraction the cars do not have more funny decorations!

    Concerning the new drive system, I just know that the engine technology will be replaced by a new one with asynchronous drive frequency converter.
