Dutchess and Mattie (short for Matteawan) are Mount Beacon's two incline railway cars. They work together as a team. 
 
Dutchess is always cheerful and has a sunny disposition. She loves her work, especially carrying children to the top of the mountain.
 
Mattie, on the other hand, is almost always wearing a frown. While he likes children just as much as Dutchess does, he's unhappy in his work and would like to leave Mount Beacon and see the world.
 
Dutchess and Mattie are working on their story, one about danger, courage and teamwork. Keep visiting here to learn more.
