Remarks & Notes 
On the mountain section where the grade can reach 4.7%, the engineer maintains a max speed of 15 km/h (9.3 mph) for his downgrade loaded train. His right hand is on the direct brake and his left hand on the air brake. The dynamic brake is set at the maximum level. In case the speed reaches 19 km/h (11.8 mph), a safety system will set the train in emergency mode and activate all brakes to stop it.
