Horseshoe Curve East Leg
The rear of the steam powered passenger train is at about milepost 241.6, a location of a signal bridge spanning the mainline in this circa 1940 photograph made from the higher leg of the Horseshoe curve looking northerly. The photograph shows what a 1.34 % grade looks like. The passenger train is about 800 feet long.
