This historic railway makes the 210-foot trip from the Dufferin Terrace to the Lower Town at a 45 degree angle. In more or less continual service since 1879, the original steam engine and open cars have been updated, most recently in 1997. The thoroughly-modern funicular now runs year-round. A gift shop at the French-Colonial style base station offers various souvenirs.
For $1.50CAN, you can take a nice ride up to the Chateau Frontenac. If you plan to walk up, expect a nice climb up 6 flights of stairs plus a hill. Recommend for the quick view of the old town below and view of the River.
