Traversing up and down a steep gradient requires a specialized transportation system. Inclined lifts (also called inclined elevators) and funiculars (both also called inclined planes) are one such method. Working in similar ways, both are types of cable railways, in which a cable or rope is used to haul trains.
An inclined elevator differs from a funicular in that the latter has a cable attached to a pair of vehicles, the ascending and descending vehicles counterbalancing each other. In the inclined elevator one car is either winched up to the station at the top of the incline where the cable is collected on a winch drum, or the single car is balanced by a counterweight.
This collection has both inclined elevators (red color), funiculars (green color), and canal inclined planes (blue color), which instead of pulling a train or elevator, pulls a caisson or cradle to raise boats between different water levels.
Collection currently has 493 Railways, in 59 countries across 6 continents.
syzygy: For single or a few placemarks coordinates still fine of course!

syzygy: Yup! Sorry everyone for the attachment issue! Hope will be solved soon! Until links to kmz files stored elsewhere is can be a solution...

RaveyThirteen: So... I just tried to add a .kmz of some new finds and saw that nasty error message. Should I just hold onto it til the space issue is sorted?

typsish: As far as I know, it should be foldable. But check the rules of the company you are flying with. They have the specific requirements mentioned in the luggage section. And if the stroller you have now doesn't fit their requirements, check the article on new

diane9247: I don't know what to do about the "space limit" thing. I got a post ready, then couldn't upload the small file. I am losing eyesight, so not sure I can even post anymore! 😵💫(Pinned unfinished post last night, but it didn't save.)

willi1: GE Imagery Date: Yes, I noticed it too. And I thought it was something of an attitude on my part.

SpiderX22: In regards to this error - on my forum posts/threads -> I can start compiling attached files into one kml collection to slim down attachment numbers
