Hi Sandru,

In it's simplest form, a Funicular transport system is nothing more than a counter balance system laid down on it's side. Google: water funiculars.
They are used today to move people. In the past, stone in slate mines. In the ancient past stones to build Pyramids. Khafre's causeway fits the size required perfectly.
