The Denniston Incline was built as a way to get coal that was mined on the Denniston Plateau down to sea level where it could be transported by ship to other locales. The incline was a huge engineering marvel, considered by many to be "the Eight Wonder of the World". Coal would be put in a railway cart to go down the incline and the cable would pull the empty carts back up. Today the area is basically a ghost town.
