Remarks & Notes 
Yes indeed, the horizon is level ... as far as we can talk of any horizontal line here. We are in a world of verticality and the train makes no exception. The grade is around 4%+ . This is a switchback and the train will soon travel on the track above, with engines pushing from the rear end, for about half a mile to a mile. Then it will reach another switchback and resume its journey engines first. The 3rd level of the double switchback can be seen on the top of the picture.
