Pictures of a postcard – Malaysia – Penang Hill Railway
Image by railasia
On the island Penang (Pula Pinang) at Air Itam (near Georgetown – the capital of the isle) a 2.220 metres long funicular going up and down. An illuminated idea of the colonial rulers (British) to build a resort on top for relaxation due to cooler air and certain relieve of the sweltering heat in the valley down below. The construction started in 1920 and on October 21st 1923 the line was open to the public. By that time there were two sections respectively 907 and 1313 metres long both on meter gauge (1000 mm) with a change of cars at the Middle Station. This situation last till February 2010 and on April 25 one year later the line was completely refurbished and opens again as a single line with passing loops and brand new cars made in Switzerland. Georgetown once had a tramway network (1888 – 1936 (goods only till 1957)) from the main line to Air Itam a branch was build to the lower station of the Hill railway; first to transport construction materials but short before the opening (1923) with a public tram shuttle service. In 1937 this route was taken over by a nine-seater trolleybus till they were taken out of service in 1956. Card published by Yacine collection / photography St. Lee.
