vagones de tracción por cable


Explanation:
¿Puede tratarse de un sistema de transporte de carga cuesta arriba mediante vagones (de tracción por cable) que utiliza el agua como peso compensatorio entre el vagón que sube y el que desciende?

See,

"Water balance
This is a variant of the gravity balance incline that can be used to move loads uphill. The weight of the unloaded descending train is increased using water until it is greater than the train travelling uphill. At this point gravity allows the uphill train to ascend. The water is either carried in an additional water wagon attached to the descending train, or is carried in a platform on which the train descends.
This form of incline has the advantages of a gravity balance system with the added ability to haul loads uphill. It is only practical where a ***large supply of water is available*** at the top of the incline.
An example of this type of cable railway is the passenger carrying Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway."
