Would make a great route, to take the funicular from Karakoy to Tünel, then the Nostalgic Tram to Taksim, and then the other funicular to Kabatas and back to Karakoy. Have to try this loop when I'm in Istanbul.

Just wonderin' but do they charge extra for this (ie so you don't have to walk up stairs/detour) or are they decent people and let you ride for free? Btw, I still like the one in Quebec City more, but it's above ground and a tourist trap, no real world application, but it's be cool if they had this in TO, but there's no real hill/cliff for one. :-(

Yes indeed. Very good idea!

I did not see the works of the new funicular when I went to Istanbul last October...

Nice trains, BTW

There are plenty of cities in Europe which still have funicular's to get up the steep hills. Though most are above ground. Lisbon has some of my favourite and also has street elevators for the steeper parts.

Isn't the funicular up Montjuic in Barcelona underground or at least partly underground? I sort of have memories of this, but it was a few years ago.
