      They cant bring back a Vonroll vr101..If Doppelmayr decided to put in one of there systems then it would work..

        OSHA wont allow the original Skyway to return but concept blueprints have been drawn up using an Omnimover style system to bring it back but of course TDA doesnt like the price

          Probably Doppelmayr is doing the ropeway since they bought out Vonroll in 1996.Automated stations..
