The pinnacle of dramatic railroading in the eastern United States was the cresting of the Saluda grade by Southern Railway's Carolina Special, powered by a green and gold trimmed locomotive with a helper on the rear.  This train, which ran from Charleston, SC to Cincinnati, OH was a typical passenger train of the steam era.  It consisted of mail and baggage cars, coaches, a diner and Pullmans.  It once boasted an observation car marked "Carolina Special."  This painting by Howard Fogg, commissioned by Frank Fishburne, shows the train climbing the 5.3% grade up Saluda Mountain.
