Gangloff has been manufacturing coach bodies for funicular railway systems since 1929. Meanwhile, most funiculars worldwide are equipped with Gangloff vehicles. In 1933, Gangloff built the first fully aluminium bodies for the Schwyz-Stoos funicular and since then almost 200 individually designed carriages for funiculars and rack railways have been built at Gangloff. Most of them are still in operation today.
Lightweight design is of the highest importance in this field. Calag – together with the former Gangloff crew and the state-of-the-art infrastructure – is the right partner for you when it comes to funiculars and rack railways.

From the first vehicles for the quick, new underground funiculars in Zermatt and Saas-Fee, to the carriages of the world-famous Hong Kong Peak Tram and the 400-passenger trains of the Hong Kong Ocean Park funiculars – all of them were created and built in their bespoke design at Gangloff.
