    Hi there, long time reader, first time poster.

    I was just having a look at the Thredbo @ 50 photos, and I spotted the Thredbo Valley to Charlotte's Pass Gondola.

    Does anyone have any info on this? When was it installed, decomissioned, what line did it take to get to Charlottes, and finally, how long was it? I would have to assume it was one freaking long chair/gondola!

    Anyone got any further pics, info, I'd appreciate it.

    Cheers

    There was also a very long discussion of it with book extracts and lots more photos on a forum thread a while ago. Find it by using the search function on the forum toolbar, below your username.

    I posed the question to smokin: can Ramshead be upgraded to a faster motor? or will it fall down?

    He always has a way with words, and having worked for Thredbo on lifts and engineering (I think he specialises in connecting the blue wires and the green wires and the brown wires in the right places! [​IMG] ) he could advise on Ramshead.

    Hope his bundle of fun at home is making life a joy. [​IMG]
