San Franciscans came face to face in their newspapers with the realization that they were about to lose the world's first-and last-and indubitably most famous cable-car
TIGHTROPE walker Freddy Nock obviously finds cable-car
rides a bit dull, so he walks up the wire instead.
My favourite route is to take the railcar from Arth-Goldau all the way up to Kulm, then walk down to the cable-car
station at Scheidegg (about a three hour hike at a comfortable pace).
It appeared to be the worst of its kind since 155 skiers and snowboarders died in a November 2000 alpine cable-car
line links Singapore's southern coast with the nearby Sentosa island resort, with each two-way trip lasting about 20 minutes.
At High Camp, at the top of the cable-car
lift, there is a skating rink - but not one of those little dinky ones that are popping up at many ski areas.
