Remarks & Notes 
The Sacrape horseshoe curve above Balta is one of the exceptions where the builders managed to avoid a switchback. In fact, together with the Balta horseshoe tunnel, it is a series of 2 consecutive switchbacks that were saved. This superposition of 5 pictures shows the Sacrape curve from above to below. About 65 meters of height (213 ft) separate the 2 points where the track disappears from view.
