NZ8202 : Railway incline

Railway incline
Railway incline
The path follows the original line of the Whitby-Pickering railway, opened in 1836. At first the carriages were pulled by horses, and a cable system was used to haul carriages up and down this 1-in-15 incline. Nine years later the line was converted for steam locomotives, and new section was built to bypass this incline. Looking SW to Incline Cottage.
