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.
F650 GS Dakar

Light travels faster than sound, which must be why when I meet some people they seem bright - until I hear them speak.
