Ascensore Montegalletto Funicular Railway. " Transformer " Design. Probably the most unique form of Underground Railway transport in the world !
This is a Underground Narrow Gauge Railway that " Transforms " into a Lift/Elevator. Although this railway is called a Funicular railway the attraction is there for anyone that enjoys the experience of riding something a little bit different. Genoa in Italy has a handful of Funiculars that transport passengers to the top of the mountain. They are all different and they are all an interesting ride !
This Underground Railway runs directly into the heart of the mountain for 236 metres, transforms, and then goes vertical 69 metrers up to street level just outside the Castello d'Albertis. The engineering is very interesting and it must have been very brave of the design team to propose such a challenging design. Well Done ! ! !
Certainly a minor tourist attraction for Genoa Tourism, as also, the views are magnificent from the grounds of the castle.
