Is the revolving restaurant at Scenic World still there? The last time I visited, over a year ago, it looked to me like the whole building had been rebuilt from the ground up, and I couldn't see any revolving restaurant. --Centauri 23:48, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Still there according to the official website. Maybe it's a new one.--Shantavira 10:22, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

Steepest railway?[edit]

Considering that the railway is used only for tourist pleasure, and that there are roller coasters that are almost or fully vertical, one could questionise this title. Compare Notable roller coasters. --BIL 12:36, 7 May 2007 (UTC)

except they wouldnt be considered not a railfan but i think it has something to do with being propelled in both directions, or some other technicality that qualifies it. also, the original railway was for mining and ran a track in the same spot and from memory the same incline.

Have a look at Gelmerbahn in Switzerland with 106 %. --AHert (talk) 16:08, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Katoomba is 122% Dave Rave (talk) 00:22, 12 May 2014 (UTC)

Funicular or rail incline ?[edit]
The funicular page mentions contra flow cars doing the work, but also cable drum wind. --Dave Rave (talk) 20:35, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
