Bang Pa-In cablecar - October 18, 2005
Nils writes: Do you know the Bang Pa-in cablecar? Next to the palace, which is situated along the eastern bank of the Chao Phraya, opposite an elongated island in the River, you can take a ride with this lovely contraption. It is operated by monks residing in Wat Niwet Thamprawat on the island. Whenever one of the gondolas (?) is full of passengers (there are actually quite a lot of people going for a visit), the person in the 'lookout' on the western side pulls a lever, and an old diesel engine begins its work. The usage is free, but donations are welcomed. I would like to know when this cablecar was constructed...
