This unique view of the lift shows the access vehicle on the right side of the track.  Riding in that rectangular box was how I got to the top of the hill.

The electrical motor and winch that moves the vehicle are both located at the bottom of the hill.  A steel cable, which is visible passing through a pulley mounted below the access car's track, leads from the winch up to the top of the hill and back down to the blue traveling box that shuttles up and down this segment of track.
