The Mt. Washington Cog Railway. Civil engineers calculate the slope of roadbed as the ratio of the distance it rises or falls to the distance it runs horizontally. They call this ratio the grade of the roadbed, usually written as a percentage. Along the coast, commercial railroad grades are usually less than 2%. In the moun-tains, they may go as high as 4%.

Along this part of the track, the seats in the front of the car are 14 ft above those in the rear
