Haifa, Israel has an underground funicular subway called the "Carmelit":



"Carmelit" is a contraction of Carmel (the mountain the funicular travels under) and Chasmalit - the hebrew word for electric tram.

The "Tunel" is nice! I rode it last weekend, nice old system. The interior of the cars reminded me of the metro in Paris; perhaps they were built by the same company?

The new Istanbul funicular looks good too. Too bad I didn't know about it, otherwise I would have tried it.

@asohn: interesting... it's the only underground funicular I know with so many stops.

@bitxofo: yes, the Istanbul heavy metro looks like American metro systems. It especially reminded me of the Washington metro.

Tünel's car are in fact two Paris' rubber tyred metro cars. If you look at the track of the Tünel, you will see the rails in steel but also the concrete bar for tyres.

Istanbul has historically been a great transit city, a cosmopolitan bridge between Asia & Europe. Any plans for a trans-Bosphorus metro tube to link the rail networks on both sides?
