Pittsburgh Trip- The Incline!

My favorite Pittsburgh activity (besides the Frank Lloyd Wright houses!)  Was the Duquense incline!

It was  a little trolley that had been built in 1877 to bring people up and down the giant hill.

It was a little scary!



These were the gears and wires that made it run.

The view from the top was lovely!






Okay, the next  Pittsburgh post will finally be about the Frank Lloyd Wright houses I promise!

    1. It's deceptively high! Luckily it went really slow so it wasn't too bad.

  5. Pittsburgh is such an interesting city. Is the incline a more of a tourist attraction or do people use it for mass transit? Can't wait for your next post!!

    1. It was used for mass transit before cars were invented, otherwise people would have to walk up the hill! Now it's a tourist attraction.There used to be a bunch of them but now I think there are only two left.
