Funicular railways operate with one or two cars or train sets running on a dedicated guideway or track and offer maximum availability in windy conditions. Operation is normally in the to-and-fro mode, with a haul rope used to provide the traction. Maximum line speed is 14 m/s, and car or train capacity can be anything between 20 and 400 persons. Transport capacity can vary between 500 and 3,000 persons per hour, depending on car capacity, line speed and line length.
