been there! Thanks for the memories.
No problem JBTHEMILKER, the Johnstown Inclined Plane is great attraction something so old still working with the historical flood connection. I know back here in Hudson County there used to be a another Inclined Plane, that used to carry trolley cars up and down the Palisades Cliff. It's in the Railroads of Hoboken and Jersey City book, also can be found on Amazon.com
I've never seen anything like this. Very neat!
I mean it if you get a chance go out to Johnstown PA the stuff you will learn about the flood is amazing.. With the historic floods, the Inclined Plane became a lifesaver.. Thank you John for your comment..
This one looks pretty much like in Pittsburg, PA.
Have a look at the world steepest incline to the Lookout Mountain, TN, too.
There is a history behind this inclined plane, the great Johnstown Flood was / is the reason behind building the incline to get people up and out of the valley to safety. This incline they allow cars to board besides people, I think up to two small SUVs or one big SUV / pickup truck at a time per car. You are right the Johnstown Incline does look similar to those of Pittsburg. I had the opportunity of visiting Pittsburg because of a wedding I went to. I do want to visit the Look out mountain incline in Tennessee. Great photos by the way in Pittsburg & Lookout Mt.
A Little More info: About some other inclines closer to NYC, that used to exist.. Hoboken Street Car Elevator, and the inclines of the old Morris Canal.
