What is Funicular?

Is a type of transport that goes on railways like a train but instead of going into plains, it goes on inclined slopes.

The funicular railways employ a pair of passenger vehicles which are pulled on a sloped by the same cable which loops over a pulley wheel at the upper end of a track. 

The first time that the funicular was operating was in the 1860s. And the first line was opened in Lyon in the year of 1862. 


Since then, the funicular became practical in inclined areas in countries like France, Chile, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Turkey, Brazil, Canada, Ukraine, Colombia, Mexico, and others.
