Remarks & Notes 
A few dozens meters away from the switchback turnout, the track gradients quickly diverge. This line has grades up to 4.7%. On the left of the picture between the trees, there is a train on the Chicla switchback. The distance by rail is 4 km (2.5 miles) and the difference in elevation is about 160 meters (525 ft): this is an average 4% continuous grade.
