    The V&T running between Virginia City and Gold Hill NV negotiates a 4% grade with a 2-8-0. Pretty amazing thing to see ... From: Loren

      Hey Dom,
      Your comment about mountain operations caught my eye. Here in Southern
      Oregon on the Central Oregon & Pacific, the grade is 3.7% in some areas and
      it takes 7 Geeps to pull 20 loaded box cars up the hill. I can send you a
      picture if you want showing such a consist.

      Wouldn't that look cool on you mountain track? Of course, you would be
      broke from buying Geeps, but then as a dealer, 'that's my job man" :o)
