CSX crests the Allegheny Mountains in Pennsylvania at Sand Patch summit. This famous line has been a favorite of railfans for decades. Here is an up-to-date look at the former B&O line. We’ll explore the east slope from Cooks Mills to the summit in fall and in spring. Older power fights the unrelenting westbound grade, often with manned helpers. This is real mountain railroading.
