    Great Photos Bob. I love those track photos also and they give me some ideas for the new logging line. I also love that Shay and sure can't wait for mine to arrive. Thanks for sharing. Ron :thumb: :thumb:

    What a switch back! Anyone got a guess of what grade that is?

    Looks like the first switchback between Cass, and whitaker, on the Cass Scenic Railway. I don't know the actual grade, but believe it to be about 5 percent.

    That switchback is amazing! Wouldn't mind seeing a train on it to compare views
