... hence the Shays. It is nestled along the river in the valley, and the train switch backs up and around the mountain on an 11-mile trip. The train gains about 2000 feet in elevation during this 11 mile run, hence the multiple sections of 9% grade.

The trip took about 4 1/2 hours with a 30 minute break at the top and two 20-minute water stops enroute. That locomotive ...
