136-FUL Stoosbahn Standseilbahn Schwyz-Stoos AG Morschach | Switzerland Inclined length 1,738 m Vertical rise 743 m Speed 10.0 m/s Capacity 1,500 PPH // A steep ride up the mountain. An impressive feat of engineering. Always on the level. The new Stoos funicular is a one-in-a-generation construction, an installation incorporating cutting-edge ropeway technology, and an attraction for international guests. It is a funicular like no other before. The cylindrical passenger compartments used for the first time compensate grades of up to 110% – passengers remain horizontally level irrespective of the incline. Barrier-free loading and unloading, along with the ability to carry freight simultaneously, open up plenty of possibilities for passengers and operator. The proven technology, combined with modern visual design make the new funicular up to Stoos an eye-catcher and a visitor magnet – in all weathers. 11
