Dear 100 Hour Board,

In Quebec (and probably other places, I guess), they have these cars on rails that will take you up the side of a mountain. They have a French name, and I think it starts with an M, and I think it has fourish syllables. What are these cars called?

- Montaculaire maybe?

A: Dear Ethel,

From what I can tell, these are a part of the Funiculaire du Vieux-Québec. You can read more about Funicular trains here.
