Thanks for letting me know about the distance from RR track to roadway. I made an assumption that they were close. It's been a few years since I was there and I remember seeing the roadway at some points along the ride but now you mention it, it wasn't visible all the time.

Thanks for the response. The cog train still makes its runs up the
mountain. We have hams ride the train sometimes part of the way up and or
down. The problem is that the course used by the runners isn't very close to
the train track nor the road. The road isn't very hard on cars but the 120
plus turns sure is hard on drivers. Of course the down hill is very hard on
brakes if a person doesn't know how to drive!
