The curves between the west end of Clay and Tunnel 1 are some of the best anywhere! Train crews don't often get the chance to observe their train as well as they can here. The MRONY wraps through the curves. The head end is approaching the Blue Mountain grade crossing while the tail end of the train still emerges from Tunnel 1. The back end of the train is almost 100 feet higher than the lead unit!
