Westbound Norfolk Southern train W77 has arrived at Melrose, NC in route to Asheville. The train will be broken into sections for the ascent of the 5.1% grade to Saluda, NC where it will be reassembled and continue west. We ride along in a trailing unit as the 9,000 horsepower consist brings the first cut of 22 cars to the summit. The train will rise over 600' in altitude over a distance of three miles, and three trips will be needed to bring the 56 car train over the mountain.
