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.
