The Incline Railway of Mount Beacon fascinated generations of Hudson Valley residents and visitors.

Now through the concentrated efforts of the Mount Beacon Incline Railway Restoration Society, the rails will be restored and a Visitors’ Center built with modern technology and green, sustainable concepts utilized. Frank DiLorenzo and James Diana will present ­The Incline Railway of Mount Beacon ~ past, present, and future. This lecture presentation is free and open to the public.
