Pennsylvania - Johnstown Inclined Plane
Johnstown, PA - Built after the Johnstown flood of 1889, the Inclined Plane's original purpose was to connect downtown with the higher grounds of Westmont Borough in order to develop that area residentially. During Johnstown's two other floods in 1936 and 1977, the Incline became a lifesaver, helping people to escape downtown as well as to ship supplies into the valley.

In its heyday, the Incline carried approximately 1,000,000 passengers a year to and from the downtown area. This was larely due to the steel mills that were in operation. Today the Incline welcomes visitors and locals alike, carrying approximately 100,000 passengers a year.

The Johnstown Inclined Plane is the steepest vehicular incline in the world, meaning its 30' cars, which are large enough to hold 60 people, 6 motorcycles, or a vehicle, travel at the steepest grade for cars their size.

Darlington Station 2008The photo on the right shows the station as it is today as the Ligonier valley Rail road Museum.

The mission of the museum is to preserve the history of the Ligonier Valley Rail Road. The Railroad was founded by Judge Thomas Mellon and began passenger operation on December 1, 1877 and during the course of its 75 years of operation it carried 9 million passengers and hauled 32 million tons of freight. The last run occurred on August 31, 1952.

The Museum collection includes over 3,000 items. The Museum itself houses a variety of items including lanterns, locks and keys, PRR and B&O dinnerware, and a wall map of the right of way of the LVRR. We also have a small HO gauge model RR as well as videos relating to the LVRR and other railroads.
