Product Description: 

The Cascade Mountains of western Oregon are thick with timber growing along slopes broken by waterfalls and streams. This is the setting for a mountain railroad that climbs from deep within the Willamette Valley to nearly 5,000 feet above sea level at Cascade Summit. The Long Grade begins at Eugene Yard and heads railroad south into the foothills of the Cascades. A forty mile 1.8% grade between Oakridge and Cascade Summit puts UP's locomotives to the test and keeps train crews on their toes. The line wraps around horseshoe curves, crosses trestles, and disappears through rock sheds and tunnels before reaching the top of the pass. We hike deeper into the most remote parts of the line and visit ground zero of the Frazier Slide which closed the railroad for three months in 2008. This is one of the most rugged portions of the I-5 Corridor which links the Pacific Northwest with California!
