If I had to pick a spot on the KP to spend an entire day, it would have to be Cedar Point. Eastbound trains climb up a 1.1% grade before diving back down a 1.3% grade. Coal trains will be moving very slowly on the approach and, like a roller coaster, quickly pick up speed on the downhill side. Here, a coal load is passing the west switch of the siding, getting ready to head down the hill in to Limon.
