I am enthralled with aerial trams.  They made mining in some locations practicable.  There are many still standing from California to Colorado, empty buckets swinging in the breeze heading nowhere.
Great historical reference in "Riding the High Wire, Aerial Mine Tramways in the West" by Robert A. Trennert  ISBN 0-87081-631-4  University of Colorado 2001
It is a quick read and very informative about the basically two different systems used in the west.  Love the model!
