Remarks & Notes 
Mountain climber

At Km 148, the uphill train appears on the side of the cliff, out of a sharp curve. It is climbing at about 30km/h (19 mph), the max speed for uphill trains on the 4%+ grade (max 4.7%). At 3980 meters above sea level (13060 ft), it still has 800 meters to climb in 24 km before reaching the summit (2625 ft in 15 miles).
