Pennsylvania - Monongahela Incline
Pittsburgh, PA - The Monongahela Incline – often called the Mon Incline for short – is the oldest continuously operating funicular railway in the U.S. It opened on May 28, 1870, and has since then transported millions of passengers.

The Mon Incline was consolidated into Port Authority operations in 1964 and declared a historic structure by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation in 1970.

Since then, Port Authority has made a number of renovations to ensure this historic mode of transit is enjoyed for years to come. Today, more than 1,500 riders use the Mon Incline on an average weekday, with that number nearly doubling for Saturday sightseeing.

Pennsylvania - Newton Square Railroad Museum
Newtown Square, PA - The freight station is the last vestige of the Newtown Square branch of the P.R.R. freight and passenger line that once rumbled 9.2 miles through the township to Philadelphia.

To make room for the Winding Way by-pass road, the station was moved to its new home on the Drexel Lodge site on West Chester Pike. The Newtown Square Historical Preservation Society was pleased to have the opportunity to move and save this valuable piece of history. The Historical Society will start a complete restoration on May 11, 2000. They plan to use it as a railroad museum, preserving a piece of our history for future generations. In 2006 it was transferred to the Newtown Square Penn Railroad Museum Association.
