This is the brochure for the Red Chair from Arthur Thorner’s desk.  By the time the order was filled Heron had merged with Poma.   The Red Chair is a 1971 Heron-Poma fixed grip double chair.

Bob Heron was a pioneering lift engineer building lifts such Cannon’s Original Tramway and the nation’s first single cable double chair at Berthoud Pass, CO.  He was known as a conservative engineer with an excellent safety record.  Bob retired in 1977 but worked as a consultant on Cannon’s current Tram in 1980.

It only makes sense that America’s greatest lift designer built the Red Chair. I will ride easier next time knowing Magic has Tomorrow’s Features Today!
