  Road, Rail and Water - transport in Offaly - Offaly History, Archaeology, Offaly Towns, Heritage, Research, King's ...
In the seventeenth century road transport was still at a very rudimentary stage of development, ensuring that on its finalisation the canal was in a position to dominate travel to and from the county.
As the railways offered a far speedier form of transport, their advent inevitably ensured the passing of the canal as the primary means of travel in the country and their initial arrival aroused a great deal of confrontation and bitterness between the canal companies and their new rivals.
This was only barely sustainable in the hey-day of rail transport, but on the coming of independence it was clear that it was not a situation which could be allowed to persist indefinitely.

 Funicular - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A funicular, also called funicular railway, inclined railway, inclined plane, or, in the United Kingdom, a cliff railway, is a type of cable railway in which cables attached to a tram-like vehicle on rails move it up and down a very steep slope.
In some cases, such as on the Duquesne Incline in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, there are separate parallel tracks and platforms for each vehicle; the carriages' flanged wheels resemble those of standard railway vehicles.
In such a setup, the gaps in the inside rails for the passing segment and cable path mean that only the outside rail is the guide rail for each car.

In general, it is false for anyone to state that they cannot offer for transport or transport their product unless they are granted a permit because the dangerous goods can be offered for transport and transported in compliance with the TDG Regulations.
In a public safety program applied to transportation, this is a delicate topic as the cost is mostly borne by one group, the industry, for the benefit of another group, the public.
Secondly, safety in the transport of dangerous goods was not a priority in the public mind.  For the average individual, specific legislation on the handling and carrying of dangerous goods in rail transport was not a concern.

A funicular or funicular railway, also called inclined railway or inclined plane, or in England a cliff railway, consists of a system of transportation in which cables attach to a tram-like vehicle on rails to move it up and down a very steep slope.
Typically the steepness of the track does not vary very much, which differentiates the funicular from a cable car on rails.
It is thus a hybrid between cable transport and rail transport.
