try harder to find an english word for the special aerialway in the picture becuase 
mappers all over the world have been using this improperly to map large mining and 
industrial aerialways.
Or - if an English word can not be found use the German word or make up something
like 
  aerialway=almbahn.
for this special case.

Meanwhile, key:access and usage should be usefull for all aerialways, even for the
almbahn - they do allow passenger or personel transport in some cases so "good" is
rather misleading.
