The GMRC line from Rutland to Bellows Falls has some fairly steep sections, but nothing long enough to qualify as Heavy Grade Territory. There is a section just past Ludlow heading west that gets above 2%, and the westward climb out of the Cavendish Gulf is a pretty good one as well. The VTR has five sections that are pretty good hauls, heading south there is Shelburne Hill, about 2 miles of 1%+, Proctor Hill is the same, and Arlington Hill which is about 6 miles. Heading north there is Shaftsbury Hill, about 4 miles, and Thomsons Point, only a mile and a half or so but it is wily! It is short, and starts at the bottom of a sag so if you are a little off with your air application you can get caught and stall.
And on the WACR-Conn RIver, there is Willoughby, a good, long pull from either direction.
DSLE to the stars!
