"The Gelmer Funicular" ride



Here’s a micro-film for your weekend: “The Gelmer Funicular”, in Switzerland, Facebook link here.  
  
Note the super roller coaster effect, but moreover the increasingly steep slope (second derivative in calculus) of the train tracks.


The film quality reminded me of the roller coaster opening of “This Is Cinerama” in 1955 at the old Warner Theater in Washington DC.  Don't get motion sickness watching this!
