Someplace in New England - perhaps the Berkshires, if not there, Vermont, New Hampshire, or western Maine.

Is that the approach to Marshall Pass?  If so, it would be in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.

I tuned in late today, wife's got me working on some outside jobs.  Cheesy

Saluda is in the carolinas. Very steep grade down from Saluda to Melrose and at some points over 5%. They originally built two safety tracks to stop runaway trains but only one is needed. speed is 8 MPH tops. This hill has claimed a few trains and lives. But its all history now. Its no longer being used and may turn into rails to trails.

Probably a typo, the 'u' and the 'i' on the keyboard are right next to each other.
 Cheesy I do it all the time.
