On the Subject of Funiculars: The Mt. Adams Incline

Posted on 06 June 2016

The Mt. Adams Incline was a funicular built in the Mt. Adams neighborhood of Cincinnati. It was used from 1872 to 1948, making it the longest running of Cincinnati's five funiculars. It was demolished shortly after it stopped running. Rather than having enclosed cars it used flat platforms with rails on them. This allowed regular street cars (or automobiles for that matter) to roll on and off, meaning complete street car routes could be completed without passengers having to catch connecting trains on either end of the incline.
