Stop #26 and a half; The Mon Incline

Date: August 17
Neighborhood: The Monongahela Incline
Pitt Stoppers: Mindy, Jimmy D., benoddi, Bobby D., Jonathan, Carolyn, Lily, Lisa, BTBNL, Tommy, Bish, Noreen, Gino, Kristin, Anwar, Chrissie, Erica
Bar: None.

Pluses: The angle, the view.
Weirdness: What would a tour of Pittsburgh be without a ride on the incline? The Mon Incline is the oldest continuously operating funicular in the US. And, no, I didn't know the word before looking it up.

Jimmy and benoddi are jazzed to ride the incline.

The view up the tracks.
