Loading point to the incline railroad
Inside the powerhouse at the top of the incline railroad. Two cars share the track. One going up and one going down the track. This way the weight of the car going down the hill helps pull the other car up the hill.
Sam's buddy :-)

Chattanooga and the Tennessee river
During the Civil War this was a strategic location. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Lookout_Mountain
It was a somber feeling standing on the hallowed grounds were so many men died.

This cable is all that keeps you on the hill
At mid mountain the two cars meet and pass on a special section of the track. One is going up the other down.
Chilling in downtown Chattanooga.
Great way to see the area from the river vantage point.
