"In The Holler: Paris Hill Today" (video)

Post by ut-1 »

According to the Taber treatise, the 1.8% grade on DL&W's Utica line was the ruling grade on the Lackawanna.

I thought this short video of a NYS&W freight laboring up Paris Hill on Jan 30th would be of interest here:

The train's speed was slowed by icy/snowy rails and slow orders.
