Mount Beacon Incline Railway

Local nameMount Beacon Incline Railway
LocationNew York, USA

The 3 ft narrow gauge Mount Beacon Incline Railway was a popular tourist attraction in Beacon, New York, United States, and the neighboring Town of Fishkill. It operated for much of the 20th century, providing sweeping views of the Hudson Valley, and efforts continue to restore it today.

The Otis Elevator Company and Mohawk Construction opened the railway on Memorial Day, 1902. Sixty thousand fares were sold in its first year; two decades later that had almost doubled. Riders were often day visitors from New York who came up the Hudson River by steamboat to Newburgh and then took a ferry to Beacon.
