Not very high, not very steep, but one of the great places.  These pages take you west from near Bagdad to Siberia, Klondike, Ash Hill and Ludlow.

West of Siberia the railroad splits.  The westbound (uphill) line climbs a ramp that heads to the northeast to gain elevation.  This is the place to catch Westbound trains in early morning light!
