The Monongahela Incline

The Monongahela Incline

This funicular railroad was opened to the public on May 28, 1870. The word funicular derives from the Latin funiculus, meaning thin rope. It’s a system of transport in which cables are attached to the vehicle, which then moves it up and down a steep slope on rails.

The Monongahela Incline carried passengers and freight up Mount Washington, originally known as Coal Hill. Most of the coal that fueled the early development of Pittsburgh came from here, and the primitive hoists they used were precursors to the more elaborate system that became the transit of the era.

As industry grew in Pittsburgh, so did the demand for labor. A good portion of this labor was found in immigrants from Europe. However, most industry took the flat land, leaving only the steep hillsides for housing. As public transit was a rarity then, the workers had to live within walking distance. Mount Washington was close, with lots of land for development, but there was a lack of good roads. German immigrants who settled there tired of the steep stairways and paths. They recalled the Steilbahns of their fatherland, and proposed to have them constructed here.

The Monongahela Incline was the first in 1870, the Duquesne in 1877, and in the next 18 years at least 17 of these funicular railways were built in the Pittsburgh area. Many of these inclines carried horses and wagons as well as foot passengers. The rates for passengers varied from one cent to five cents, with discounts given to regular commuters.

Currently, there are only two inclines left in Pittsburgh; the Duquesne and the Monongahela. The last one closed was the Castle Shannon, in 1964. The inclines today are still used; however half of the passengers are there purely for the ride and the spectacular view it provides.
