This 20 degree curve was built to maintain the elevation gain at the rate that the original engineers had designed to locate the line. The curve was partially protected by snow sheds, similar to the one at Cumbres Pass. This section of track is known by two different names; Cumbres Curve and Tanglefoot Curve.
