It rather goes without saying that there are not too many spots with decent elevation out on the plains! So it is always nice to find a hill to take advantage of. Just west of Akron, the Akron Sub and US-34 converge right at a nice hill and the tracks run through a cut. Standing on the north side of the cut here, there is a nice view of this Z-Train as it continues east on green signals. At this point, we are too far east to even see mountains to the west.
