Climbing Horseshoe Curve
One of the most famous locations in American railroading is Horseshoe Curve, where the multi-track mainline of the Norfolk Southern (formerly the Pennsylvania) Railroad assaults the Alleghenies with a steep grade and a 180-degree bend. Many trains pass here each day, but a visit by a steam locomotive is a rare event indeed.
Here Nickel Plate 765 charges upgrade around the curve with a couple of Heritage-painted diesels to assist, handily outpacing the double stack container train on the next track.
