The Incline No. 2

Opened in November 1895, the Incline No. 2 was constructed by John Crass and the Lookout Mountain Incline Railway Company. The track was built at a steeper 72.7% grade to transport visitors up Lookout Mountain. The cars originally operated on coal-burning steam engines, which were upgraded to two 100-horsepower motors in 1911. While the Inclines did operate in tandem for a period, the No. 2 eventually purchased and demolished the No. 1. Today, the Incline No. 2 is still in operation in St. Elmo.
