NS 335, a Westbound Central of Georgia train, tops Trammells Hill as it readies for a meet with its counterpart, NS 334. It's a long 5+ mile, 1.16% descent down the hill into Sylacauga, AL from here for 335.
NS Train 335 crosses Huckleberry Road about half-way down the 5 mile long Trammells Hill headed into Sylacauga, AL. This is a favorite shot of the photographers for both East and West bound trains. This location is on the NS P-Line in Talladega County, AL.

NS 335 Arrives at the top of Trammells Hill in Talladega County, Alabama on the NS P-Line. It now has to travel a steady downhill 1.16%, 5 mile grade into Sylacauga, AL at the bottom of the hill. Dynamic brakes are a must have option on this grade.

These two sign, seen at Trammells, AL on the NS P-Line between Birmingham, AL and Columbus, GA, shows the end of the CTC from the West and the begining of TWC from the East. Actually, that's not correct. This line is now ruled by Track Authorities, not Track Warrents.
NS Central of Georgia Train 334 begins the 6 mile climb up the 1.16% grade that is Trammells Hill after leaving downtown Sylacauga, AL on April 23, 2009. This long, steady grade regularly causes over-tonnage trains to stall, requiring the crews to double the train to the top of the hill. This...
