End of the road for the Aiguille cable car

I rode up this cable car on 2 Feb 2011 for the last time. As of 8 Feb 2011 this was no longer possible. The cable car (affectionately known in French as the “egg”) is being dismantled. Too old and too slow and (who knows?) maybe dangerous too but this wasn’t on my mind on Feb 2. Picture below from the top station at 2600 m.
