monocable detachable gondola

A monocable detachable gondola (MDG) is a common type of aerial lift, with a single steel cable strung between two or more stations, supported by intermediate towers. Many gondola cabins hang from the cable via a detachable grip, which allows the cabins to detach from the cable and slow down at each station. The cable provides both support and propulsion for the gondolas.
