The aerial tramway...quite a sight I am sure. I remember many years ago at a national NMRA convention, a gent had built an HO scale/HOn3 gauge model(s) of the tramway, north & south towers. The tiny cars were transported between the towers (which were dioramas with track, etc.) over about a 20 foot "chasm" between a couple of tables. Just an incredible thing. I believe he described this in a NG&SL a few years back. Needless to say, the model won every award they had to offer! So, yes, a working model of the Mich-Cal aerial tramway could be built...how much space do you have for one?
