Colour postcard,'Mountain Railway', Japan - British Exhibition, 1910. The Mountain Railway was one of the most exhilarating attractions at White City. The thrill ride carried visitors by electric train up through a series of mountains, bridges and viaducts. On reaching the highest mountain pinnacle, the train cars descended at tremendous speed, through great 'dips and divides'. The speed of the trains exceeded that of the fastest express trains anywhere in the world.
