The Maid of the Mist Incline Railway 2012

#maidofthemist   #train   #incline   #niagarafalls  #1894 #canonphotography   #railway  
The Maid of the Mist Steamboat Company was created in 1884 and is now North America's longest running attraction, providing continuous service on its popular sightseeing boats. In 1894, an incline railway carried Maid of the Mist patrons on the Canadian side of the river between the foot of Clifton Hill and the boat dock. The Niagara Park and River Railway (N.P.R.R.) obtained permission from the nine-year-old Queen Victoria Park Niagara Falls Park Commission (renamed The Niagara Parks Commission in 1927) to build the electrically powered Clifton Incline on Commission property along a 50.3m (165ft) embankment.

Niagara Falls Incline RailwayThe Clifton Incline as well as the Whirlpool Rapids Incline were among the assets of the N.P.R.R. purchased by The International Railway Company in 1902. With the demise of the I.R.C. in 1932, The Niagara Parks Commission assumed ownership of both funiculars.

The Clifton Incline, (renamed "Maid of the Mist Incline" in 1973), with its small 12-passenger cars running on open, separate tracks, carried 395,000 passengers in its last year of operation. At the time it was dismantled, beginning October 18, 1976, the incline had been in service for 83 seasons.

A new Maid of the Mist Incline opened on May 14, 1977, with bright yellow and orange cars designed to resemble trolley cars of earlier days. Each car carried 24 passengers (double the capacity of the cars they replaced) up or down the gorge in just 45 seconds.

A year prior to the new incline's first season, the "Maid of the Mist IV" had entered service, increasing the overall passenger capacity of the sightseeing fleet of four boats, from 350 to 550. Demand for the incline's services increased further with the arrival of the 300 passenger "Maid of the Mist V", which replaced the much smaller Maid II in 1983. The double decking of Maids III and IV before the 1986 season added room for yet another 160 persons per trip to the fleet, but no more could be done to increase the 900 passenger per hour capacity of the incline railway.

In the late 1980s, Niagara Parks redeveloped the site adjacent to the upper station of the Maid of the Mist Incline. The Princess Elizabeth building was replaced by the much larger Maid of the Mist Plaza. This complex, built below ground to give sightseers an unobstructed view of the Falls and gorge,contained four elevators,doubling the hourly capacity of the incline. After 15 seasons the second Maid of the Mist Incline was closed in October 1990.
