The engine room

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


The driving system at the top station.
One of the transformations of this new funicular was to reduce the noise and vibration of the engine room at the top station.
To solve this problem the engine and the driving system (gear unit and coupling) was installed on a concrete slab which is suspended onto springs

Painting works in the engine room.

The two main pulleys are still the same as the precedent funicular.
