ATT 1600 - funicular at Vaujany

Year of creation: 1995






Because of the steep slope, the frontal view of this funicular lift is a bit awesome, so studies had to play down this sensation. The idea of a suspended cabin (or at least the illusion that this was the case) soon took form, and was reinforced by the subsequent inclusion of a duct in the lower part, to facilitate maintenance interventions on this ‘sloping lift’.
