Tignes Funicular

Tignes Funicular

1992

The construction of the Tignes funicular by vehicles was a technological feat: the design imposed was a cylindrical cauldron, but as the doors had to be vertical on the slopes, the shape of the arches constituting the structure was ovoid

A structure conceived as a masterpiece

The cauldron consisted of a steel frame to which was riveted the aluminum structure supporting the composite exterior and interior cladding. Each of the boxes rested on two bogies.
