    From Niagara This Week:

    A watermain break last month has left the Niagara Parks Commission’s incline railway out of commission until spring.

    The 48-year-old attraction, which ferries riders up and down between the Table Rock and Fallsview tourist districts, underwent a $7-million renovation in 2013 and NPC general manager John Lohuis, said that without the improvements, the damage could have been worse.

    “In many ways, the hardening on the side of the embankment prevented further damage.”

    Again, old news, but I still wanted to post it…

    From the Buffalo News:

    The Falls Incline Railway, which connects the Table Rock tourist area next to the Horseshoe Falls and the hilltop hotels, has been closed indefinitely because of a major water main break at Main Street and Stanley Avenue, the Niagara Parks Commission reported Wednesday.

    From Niagara This Week:

    It was short, just over a minute long, but kids from the Boys and Girls Club of Niagara got to do something no one else will be able to do.

    They were among the first passengers to ride the new Niagara Parks Commission Incline Railway along with a select group of politicians and other dignitaries.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    It’s time to stop the decline of the incline.

    The Niagara Parks Commission has plans to replace its aging Falls Incline Railway that makes it easier for visitors to go from the Fallsview tourism district down into the park.

    The upgrade is the next phase of its Table Rock Redevelopment Project and is intended to enhance the overall guest experience of Niagara.

    The announcement was made Friday near the Table Rock Clock Tower close to the incline by Janice Thomson, interim chair of the NPC, and Niagara Falls MPP Kim Craitor, parliamentary assistant to the Minister of Tourism and Culture.

    The projected opening date is March 2013.
