From the 4th of June to the 4th July incl. the Funicular railway will be closed when we will be undertaking some major planned maintenance tasks. This work will involve the replacement of the Funicular Haul/Counter ropes, comprehensive inspections of the Drive/Counter Bullwheels and special inspections of the ABB Motor and Flender Gearbox. Engineers from Garaventa AG of Switzerland will directing the work supported by our own mechanical engineering personnel. In preparation, over the winter season a lifting frame was installed in the Ptarmigan building Plant room. This frame will be utilised to lift and suspend the Main Bullwheel allowing access to the critical components.
As a consequence of these works, the Ptarmigan building will also be closed and exclusion areas around the Base Station building will be fenced off. The Storehouse Restaurant and Outfitters Shop will be open as normal as well as summer guided walks.
