Welcome to Saluda, North Carolina at the top of the Saluda Grade
The Steepest Standard Gauge Mainline Railroad in the United States.

Looking at the crest of the "hump" in Saluda.
The hump is the point which a train can stop and
balance itself with the load split both sides going downhill!
The Town of Saluda is visiable to the right.
