HNWR139

Description

Engine No. 382 runs the steepest grade of all - a sustained three percent grade to the summit at White Top Station. This run, affectionately known as the "Virginia Creeper", ran between Abingdon, Virginia and West Jefferson, North Carolina. Here, the Class M engine passes Green Cove depot, but is still three rail miles from the summit.
