The Fenelon Place elevator is described as the world's shortest, steepest scenic railway, 296 feet in length, elevating passengers 189 feet from Fourth Street to Fenelon Place. Where you will see a magnificent view of the historic Dubuque business district, the Mississippi River and three states.
From the Fenelon Place Elevator Co. website re the Fenelon Place Elevator in Dubuque, Iowa. Which is what this is.
Shortest and steepest. Because every tourist attraction needs to be able to claim an "-est" or two.
