Train Vocab from @Rubenerd


Peak Tram, Hong Kong

Well, this is exciting! I've liked trains forever against my better judgement, apparently, as a member of the female gender, but despite that I know very little about trains in general - Unlike Ruben! However, in reading Ruben's post today though, I've just realised the term for what the Peak Tram is - it's a funicular! I could recognise the way it operated as a counterbalance between the ascending and descending carriages, but didn't know what the name for that was! :)

Of course, it didn't occur to me to check Wikipedia, which was kind of silly of me. Well, you learn something new everyday! (Apart from the veracious voracity.)

Good views from the top!
