Streetcars of the Chattanooga Area
Lula Lake line (proposed) - 1895

The Lula Lake line would have run from the top of Incline No. 2 to the lake.

Other rail lines on the map include the older incline climbing to the Point Hotel, the narrow-gauge railway from that hotel to the Sunset Rock area, and the broad-gauge line (Chattanooga & Lookout Mountain Railway) ascending the plateau via a circuitous route from Mountain Junction. The railroad through Flintstone is the Chattanooga Southern, and the railroad between the mountain and the river is the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis.

East of Forest Hills Cemetery is the Chattanooga Union Railway, which would become the Belt Railway Company of Chattanooga after its acquisition by the Alabama Great Southern in 1895. (The AGS main line is shown crossing the state line south of Wauhatchie.)

The dashed line labeled St. Elmo & Mountain is the Chattanooga Electric Railway's St. Elmo branch.

South of Lula Lake (spelled Lulu on the map) is the Chickamauga & Durham, connecting Chickamauga, Ga. with the Durham coal mines atop Lookout Mountain.
