Automobile With Aerial Cable Tracks Is Latest in Ferries
ALL records for novelty in the field of ferry boating have been smashed by a couple of Virginia youths. What they did to achieve this distinction was to stretch a couple of strong steel cables across a creek to form a pair of aerial tracks an which an automobile actually crosses back and forth. The tires have been removed, however, and the rims especially revamped to fit the cableway. Just in case the car jumps the track, there is an overhead trolley ready to take the load, so that passengers on the unique ferry need have no fear of an unannounced ducking. No turntable is necessary at the terminus of the tracks, for the car just backs up on the return trip
