Did it really? How come?


#7

One in Slovenia circa 2011 is the best I’ve got for you


#8

the one in Barcelona really puts the ‘fun’ in ‘funicular’


#9

Are you feeling ok? You’ve turned a funicular


#10

not for a while


#11

last one was in wellington i think?


#12

I use this joke whenever in proximity of a funicular and it is a guaranteed no laugher.


#13

the braking system was deemed ‘unreliable and prone to failure’ and they haven’t been able to secure funding to make to necessary repairs/upgrades.

it was closed quite a lot last year for refurbishment and so on as well.

Watched one do it’s funicularing in Prague last year, but had no call to use it.


#15

Shame that, no Rotunda and no Leas Lift = Not quite sure what Folkestone even is any more.


#16

Going to Porto in a month or so, will definitely check it out


#17

oh, we’re rebranding as an artsy hipster retreat in much the same vein as all the coastal towns in thanet. :+1:


#18

:grimacing:


#19

Aberystwyth had a great one that went up the mountain.

(this is slightly unfair of me, there’s quite a lot of good stuff happening here, and i reap quite a few of the benefits of the arts-led regeneration. but there are also quite a lot of unbearable london art twats who appear at weekends, though.)
