Funicular tourism

Always seem like a popular tourist attraction, seems a bit weird.

Love a funicular. I am a funicular tourist

Imagine a world in which funiculars were switched with buses and the bus became a tourist attraction in some cities.

Like sightseeing buses

I’m a big fan

sort of, but the bus is the sight that you’re seeing (and riding)

I’m into it. Sign me up.

Whenever I think of the word funicular I sing it to the tune of that bit in Moulin Rouge that goes ‘spectacular spectacular…no words in the vernacular’.

it’s good when you get a good view out of it like that

Generally just prefer to walk up the hill

possibly the closest the word funicular has ever come to being in a song, shame it missed out

Gonna jump on a funicular?

How else are you going to get to the top of Constitution Hill?

The Mrs sometimes calls her naughty bits the funicular railway
