At Section II in the Carris Museum we have two turnstiles for passenger control, in cast iron, green colour and with a counter. These turnstiles provided service at the entrance to the lower station of Bica Funicular.
After the inauguration of Bica Funicular in 1892, in 1894 the tourniquet was installed for counting passengers in the lower station. This was, and today it is the only funicular station in Lisbon with a turnstile, as the entrance is inside the building nº 234 on Rua de São Paulo.
