    It’s rare to see detachables that have half-towers like this. Most of the time, the general practice is for all towers to have sheaves on both light and heavy sides unless circumstances necessitate otherwise (like the half tower for the heavy side on the Northwest Magnum 6 at the cliff, or the half-tower for the light side of Big Red Express at that one cliff).

      Also, I have never seen these Doppelmayr carriers, or ever seen a CLD-260, or really any Doppelmayr detachable lift with a drive separate from the terminal. I’ve only ever seen those with the Poma Alpha-Falcon terminal design, also around this era.
