single lane with bypass
With the “single lane with bypass” configuration, the two carriers run on a single track and cross at a passing loop. The infrastructure is lighter for a large capacity with reversible operation
With the “single lane” configuration, the funicular railway works reversibly on one track.
Finally, with the “dual lane” configuration, each carrier moves back and forth independently on its track. This is the funicular railway solution to be adopted for transport with a very high number of visitors. This configuration also allows redundancy in the event of a track failure or maintenance.
