The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway will be featured this coming Tuesday, February 22nd on The History Channel's "Only In America" with Larry The Cable Guy. The show is scheduled to air at 9 pm EST.

"Only In America" with Larry The Cable Guy features the famous comedian in vignettes of odd jobs that people have across the United States.

"Working in tandem with Pilgrim Films, who produces the show was wonderful," said Matthew Higgins, Incline Railway Manager, "Larry is a talented and naturally funny person. He was friendly to the passengers, signing autographs and having his picture taken during the taping," he added.

The Lookout Mountain Incline Railway is the world's steepest passenger railway owned/operated by CARTA, the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority.

The Incline was opened in November, 1895 and hosts hundreds of thousands of riders each year as one of Chattanooga's most visited attractions.
