Built by John Crass and the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway Company, The Incline is a technical marvel that at its extreme reaches an incline of 72.7%, making it the steepest passenger railway in the world. The original coal-burning steam engines were replaced by two 100-horsepower motors in 1911, but other than that the railway hasn’t changed very much in its more than 100 years of operation.

Alex took pictures of his grandparents (the two RV Gypsies) while waiting for the ride down Lookout Mountain. It was a warm day so Karen had her fan around her neck, as usual.

These are specially designed cars, with windows on the side and the ceiling, which allowed for good viewing from any seat. Karen aimed the camera upwards towards the windowed ceiling and took photos of their reflections.
