The Viewing Deck Collections; Cable Cars/Gondola Lifts/Ropeways

Gondola lift is a type of aerial lift, often called a cable car, which is supported and propelled by cables from above. It consists of a loop of steel cable that is strung between two stations, sometimes over intermediate supporting towers. The cable is driven by a bullwheel in a terminal, which is connected to an engine or electric motor. They are often considered continuous systems since they feature a haul rope which continuously moves and circulates around two terminal stations. In Japan, all the systems above are regarded as a same kind of rail transport and called ropeway while telpher in China.
