Funicular
A funicular (/fəˈnɪkjʊlər/) is one of the modes of transport, along with a cable railway and an inclined elevator, which uses a cable traction for movement on a steep slope. A pair of vehicles are pulled on a slope by a cable which loops over a pulley wheel at the upper end of a track. While one vehicle is ascending the other one is descending the track and thus they are counterbalancing each other. Both vehicles are permanently attached to a cable, which distinguishes them from a cable railway.[1] Funiculars of one type or another have existed for hundreds of years, and they continue to be used for moving both passengers and goods
