Remarks & Notes 
Unassisted the great old symbol of the the best rail in the eastern US attacks the steepest mainline grade in America on a great day when Carl and Bob Lehman met me to photograph the spectacle. Take you opportunities while you may.

When you say the word Saluda to some of the most senior members of Norfolk Southern crews and even those who have retired from the railroad, it still brings up images of the steepest grade on a standard gauge line in the United States at 4.24%.
