    What is the big red handle for in the corner where the operator sits? Emergency shutdown?

      I believe that handle is for the track rope brake, which can be used by the operator to stop the cabin on the track ropes if an emergency issue occurs with the haul rope.

    What’s the point of such a random tram like this? Doesn’t seem like it needed to be a tram.
