Masada aerial cableway, Israel

This 0.9 km long cableway was built as shown in 1971 by the Karl Brändle company of Switzerland. "It had one aerial tramway support pillar and two cabins with a length of 900 metres and an elevation change of 290 metres. It was replaced in 1998 by an aerial tramway built by Von Roll without any support pillar, thus allowing the cabin's hanger to completely enclose the two track ropes and the haul rope." Operating speed is 29 km/h. (wikipedia)
