- This structure was the first of 17 inclines that once traversed the steep slopes along the river that bears its name. The tilted rail cars and tracks, built in 1870, shuttle passengers from the foot of Smithfield Street at Station Square to the top of Mt. Washington. Still a functioning piece of the public transit system, Monongahela is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. It offers a stunning view of the Golden Triangle (downtown) skyline from the observation deck atop Mt. Washington.
