Pittsburgh - The Incline

>> Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Yesterday I posted about taking the kids to the Carnegie Science Museum.  After we left the museum, we decided to take the kids for a ride on the Duquesne Incline.  The history of inclines in Pittsburgh is amazing and at the top there is a display of old photos showing the incline's history through the years.

Here's some photos from our adventure!

Waiting to get started!




We saw a crew of workers repainting the rails.  It was so cool because before the cars could start moving, you could hear the foreman yelling, "Move 'em over!" and they would move to the center of the tracks.  You can see in the one picture, one of the workers waving to the girls!




Peeking out the window as we go up!
