This was the temporary terminus during my visit in June of 2012 to major road reconstruction. Here the lead tram coming up the hill would uncouple. At the last passing siding a motor tram traveling light followed our train up the hill. Here it coupled to the back of the train. It then pulled the train back down the hill. The original lead tram followed the train light to the passing siding where it repeated the cycle with the next train. From this stop there are many hiking trails through this gorgeous national park. I chose to walk along the road to reach the real terminal of the line.
