意大利最怪电梯之阿尔贝蒂斯城堡电梯

The Strangest Elevator In Italy: the Ascensore Castello d'Albertis-Montegalletto, Genoa

欢迎来到热那亚 意大利北部美丽的港口城市
Welcome to Genoa, a beautiful port city in the north of Italy.
这是座异常垂直的城市 建成在大片山冈之上
It’s a very vertical city, built on a lot of hills.
那么多山冈造就了数个
So many hills infect that the city has several
登山铁路和隧道电梯 这些捷径遍布
funicular railways and elevators tunnelled through the rock, shortcuts that get around
数英里弯曲拥堵的道路或数千级阶梯
miles of twisty, congested roads or thousands of stairs.
最怪的是Montegalleto的阿尔贝蒂斯城堡电梯
And the strangest one of these is the Ascensore Castello d’Albertis Montegalleto.
或者就叫城堡电梯
Or: the castle elevator.
多年前 你得自己走上300米长的隧道去乘电梯
Years ago, you’d have to walk through 300m of tunnel yourself to reach the lift,
不过现在 如果你从底部出发
but now, if you start at the bottom,
来接你的是一个奇怪的方形轿厢
an odd little square box comes to pick you up.
它看着有点像普通的电梯轿厢 只不过水平运行
It looks a bit like a regular elevator car, only going horizontally.
搭上之后 它会载你通过这300米 穿过岩石
You get on, it takes you the 300 metres through the rock,
经过某些操纵装置 然后
past some control equipment and then,
和另一节反向轿厢并联之后
after a bit of shunting around with another box that’s headed the other way,
变为垂直运行
It goes vertically,
直接升向山顶的城堡
right up to the castle at the top of the hill.
这会儿你可能觉得 那在理论上是可行的
Now you might think, that’s a great idea in theory,
好比星际迷航的涡轮增压电梯 但无疑是危险的
It’s like a Star Trek turbolift,but surly is dangerous.
我这么说是因为我本人就是轮机员
And I say that wearing a red shirt.
电梯需要有各类保护系统
Elevators need to have all sorts of protection systems
以免坏掉的电缆造成事故
so one bad cable can’t snap and cause a disarster.
他们怎么可能
How can they possibly make one that has all that
完全地检查自我分离和运行离开的电梯呢?
proper detection when it’s got to detach itself and move off?
答案是:他们不能 因为实际上情况不是这样的
Well the answer is: they can’t. Because that’s not what it’s doing.
知道以后 你会觉得解决方法很简单:
And in hindsight, the solution is kind of obvious:
就是有两套独立的系统
There’re two seperated systems here.
这与迪斯尼在主题公园的惊魂古塔用的是同样的电梯
It’s the same hack that Disney use for the Tower of Terror at their theme parks:
在乘客搭乘的时候它自身只会水平运行
the bit that the passengers get into can only go horizontally on its own.
连接着一路牵引它的电缆
It attaches to a cable that pulls it along.
当它接触到电梯轴的时候
When it reaches the lift shaft,
实际上是进入到了另一个大点的电梯
it’s actually getting into another, bigger elevator,
它自己牢牢地与之连接上
it attaches itself firmly to that,
然后被安全地吊升
and then it gets hoisted up and down in safety
仿佛它只是一部普通的载客电梯
as if it were a regular passenger elevator.
这是工程的闪光点
It’s a brilliant bit of the engineering.
就是这样 人们不必再为乘个电梯走300米了
And it’s all. so people don’t have to walk 300 metres to a regular lift.
