I wonder why you have chosen to call this a "Leitner breakover assembly"...
The first one I saw was in Sun Valley, ID in 1978... and it was a "Yan breakover assembly"...

You know, I never thought of checking out the idea of Yan using the design Leitner took to Europe.


I was considering the one here from the Christie Peak Express (pictures here by skierdude9450):

I don't think any one manufacturer has a lock on this design being 'theirs'. I've seen a Doppelmayr service bulletin that also refers to this kind of towerhead.

I guess that's really not too uncommon. Poma had a setup like that on one of their gondolas in France in 1986.
