Fill her up!
Fill her up!
The simple but effective mechanism for filling the balance tank under the car of the SS7149 : Lynton and Lynmouth funicular. The water is fed from a local stream and the weight of the water carries the car downhill whilst pulling its twin, with an empty ballast tank, up hill.
