Post Note #1 - “The Katoomba Railway is NOT the steepest incline railway in the world at 52 degrees. The Lookout Mountain, Tennessee Incline Railway at 72.7 degrees is the steepest. It was built in 1895 and is still operating.” - Jay A. Morgan, Fort Payne, Alabama

Post Note #2 - “I noticed an error in your Post Note about the Lookout Mountain, Tennessee Incline Railway. Its steepest incline is given as 72.7 degrees, but it’s actually 72.7% grade, which is arctan(72.7/100) = 36 degrees. So Katoomba Railway has a steeper maximum incline at 52 degrees.” - David Hines, Phoenix, Arizona
