A funicular (/fᵿˈnɪkjᵿlər/) railway is one where the carriages are pulled by a rope. Such a means of moving carriages is often used on steep railway inclines where traction by friction is not enough. Such railways are also known as an inclined plane or cliff railway, is a cable railway in which a cable attached to a pair of vehicles on rails moves them up and down a steep slope, the ascending and descending vehicles counterbalancing each other. Funicular railways of one sort or another have existed for hundreds of years and continue to be used for moving both passengers and goods. Its name derives from the latin, funiculus, diminutive of funis, meaning "rope". An alternative means of traction on inclined railways is via gears or cogs and known as a rack railway. To have a funicular railway on level ground is rare but an example of this exists between Birmingham International Airport and the nearby railway station - on what used to be the 'maglev' track.
