I wrote a story yesterday about one of Pittsburgh's two surviving funiculars, or inclined plane railroads, in Pittsburgh's best view from atop the Duquense Incline.
The trip to the top of the city's Mt. Washington via this unique late-nineteenth-century conveyance is one of the Pennsylvania city's most visited tourist attractions and offers a great view of the city's numerous bridges.
Here are a couple of alternate shots I didn't use in yesterday's story.
