The tag railway=funicular is used for cable driven inclined railways. In many cases they serve a touristic interest, giving easy access to spectacular mountain views. Usually they have two cars that operate at the same time in a counter balance system, with a passing loop at the half way point. The passing loop is normally mapped.
