Funicular Railways of Valparaíso, Chile.

Valparaiso in  has had up to 26 working  funicular railways  - most are now inactive, as of 2009 fewer than 10 are in active use.  The funicular railways were mainly constructed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Here you can see some of them still functiong at Monjas, Artilleria, Lecheros, Baron, El Peral, Espiritu Santo and Polanco.
