    On the top station drive unit, it looks like they attached a fixed grip drive and put it behind a detachable station and combined it.

        I had no idea doppelmayr did it too. I always figured it went straight from Quicksilver-like chairs to CLD-260. What was that terminal model called? In fact what was that fixed-grip model called? I know it was common but I can’t quite put my finger on it.
