    :lol3 Funicular? Means it's spiral - like a funnel. I only knew where it was because we stopped there on the way to the NSW sidecar rally last year.

    Not so...

    A funicular, also known as an inclined plane or cliff railway, is a cable railway in which a cable attached to a pair of tram-like vehicles on rails moves them up and down a steep slope; the ascending and descending vehicles counterbalance each other.

    There is (or was) one at Katoomba.

    They're all over the place. Hong Kong, Penang, Los Angeles, etc.



    "Funiculì, Funiculà" is a famous Neapolitan song written by Italian journalist Peppino Turco and set to music by Italian composer Luigi Denza in 1880. It was composed to commemorate the opening of the first funicular cable car on Mount Vesuvius.
