"The Incline"

Pittsburgh is a beautiful city. Situated between 3 rivers, Pittsburgh is full of bridges, and tunnels and beautiful sites. This weekend we took the kids to the "Duquesne Incline." The Incline is a rail car that was built in 1877 as a way to provide safe, reliable, rapid public transportation, via funicular railway to the residents and businesses of the Duquesne Heights and Mount Washington sections of the City of Pittsburgh. Utilizing two original, 1877 cable cars, the Duquesne Incline is a working museum. The top of "the Incline" overlooks the beautiful Golden Triangle of Downtown Pittsburgh, and surrounding area including the upper Ohio River valley and lower Allegheny River Valley, it was ranked the second most beautiful view in America by USA Weekend Magazine. Come visit and we will take you!!!!!

I've been on that as a kid! I loved it. My dad is from Pittsburgh and probably the biggest Steelers fan EVER!
