Jacobite Gradient Map


The West Highland Railway is notorious for its gradients and tight curves, neither of which are locomotive friendly! The terrain does, however, force some tremendous demonstrations of the steam engine hard at work sights and sounds which can be enjoyed from the comfort of the train or by photographers in the fields. (Please see the Gallery page.) The gradient profile of this railway is shown above.
