Remarks & Notes 
There are those events to which we can look back and say "I'm glad I was there". This was such an event. "We don't need no stinking diesels!" Up the steepest mainline grade in America comes this excursion with just on steamer. Saluda was a point of honor with Southern railroaders. Where there's still track and right of way there's still hope we may see it again.

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%.
