Trains and Tunnels

Here’s another highlight from our trip–a train ride through climbing vistas and numerous tunnels. The longest tunnel on this track is over a quarter mile (437 meters.) This short rail ride also boasts the largest wrought iron structure in the entire country–a trestle over 646 feet long (197 m) and more than 154 feet high (47 m.) The ride takes passengers over 800 feet (250 m) skyward traveling through the “Hills of Heaven.”
My son, Dan, and his wife, Megan, are shown sitting in the train passenger car, enjoying a snack. The second photo shows the train winding its way upward. Any idea where you could find this mystery train???
