Hey everyone!

So everybody knows the Indiana Jones mine cart chase scene where Indiana Jones is on this crazy mining cart inside this crazy mine that leads out to a straight drop cliff. I've always wondered to myself "is there any historical evidence of such mines?" Like gravity powered mining tracks, crazy mining tracks inside the mine with openess to put buildings and such? Or maybe gravity tracks outside the mine? I hope i'm making sense; anything remotely similiar to the movies we see. Or maybe just mining tracks that cling to the side of a cliff outside the adit? Photos of anything similiar, links or just general info would be great! Is it possible if these things have ever existed or something remotely similiar. Thanks!
