The Walton's Coal Incline was a nineteenth-century incline, used to transport coal from a mine mouth just west of West Elizabeth, Pennsylvania to a tipple on pool 2 of the Monongahela River. It crossed the entire width of the Borrough of West Elizabeth, passing over the Pittsburgh, Virginia and Charleston Railway.
