1900Transportation of marble from the Lasa valley

Near the Kargetzen, along the flat parts of the route, the back side of the cargo deck was raised on wooden ramps of wood the width of the front axle and rollers were fitted across in order to swap the wheels and axles with smaller ones, normally made of metal. The load was then pulled by horses. When the track was too steep the rear wheels were taken off at the next available Kargetz and not employed at all. In this case the load was being dragged. A good 5000 m³ of marble left the Lasa valley in this way. Stories about carters and drivers of horses, who used to work all year long, are still being told in the villages today.
