Remarks & Notes 
Waiting amongst the Joshua trees for eastbounds near the top of Cima Hill is a pretty relaxed experience. Although you're never quite sure when the next train might come, when one is on its way you can watch it for about an hour as it drags itself agonisingly up the 18 mile, 2.2% grade from Kelso at the foot of the hill. On a beautiful afternoon, a heavy K-Line stack-train has almost finished its climb up the valley at just the right time to allow a little sunlight to fall on its nose.
