Saluda ---the Asheville & Spartanburg Norfolk Southern Line.  Freeware by Kent Weissinger Updated 9/15/2007 to correct a template error discovered by a user.   "I have many, many impressions of Saluda Mountain both during the time I was a train dispatcher in Asheville and also when I returned later as division superintendent ... It is undoubtedly the most dangerous and critical stretch of mainline railroad anywhere in the country, and the unusual events that have occurred on the mountain would fill a rather large book. Fortunately, modem equipment such as pressure maintaining features of locomotives as well as more sophisticated brake equipment have reduced the danger to some extent, but as you know it is still a piece of railroad that must be watched every minute."
