Smoky Mountain Meanderings
Lookout Mountain Incline Railway

Car approaching the top One of the two Lookout Mountain Incline Railway cars nearing the top and just coming off the steepest section.  At 72.7% this is claimed to be the steepest passenger railway in the world.
The view from the top!  You can see the length of the incline railway going from the bottom of the picture to two thirds up the frame.   The track above it, beyond the shopping centre, is according to my SPV Atlas for the area a Norfolk Southern (former AGS) line.
