Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bellevue funicular, in Meudon, Hauts-de-Seine department, was from 1893 to 1934 a funicular running from the Bellevue-Funiculaire station on the Coteaux line, to the Gare de Bellevue, on the Paris-Brest railway line. The line, designed by the engineers Guyenet, Madamet and Tinel, was 183 m of single track rising 52.44 m. After being permitted to cross the Coteaux line, the lower station was raised 3.5 m to connect with the route from Vaugirard, thus requiring passengers to climb a staircase, clearly seen on the left of the station. With a constant gradient of 16 56', it was entirely built on a viaduct of twelve metal sections, resting on five lattice pillars and two masonry abutments with a foundation of solid brick. A passing loop was provided in the middle of the route. The Vignole rails weighed 30 kg/m, at a track gauge of 1,440 mm. Safety brakes were provided by a rack rail.show more
