Description 

If you climb 10's you should lead this, exhilarating exposure pulling the roof into a nice diagonal tips crack.

It's named for a train that passed by during the crux of Rich Romano's first ascent.

It's the next bolted route right of classic Wonderama.


Protection 

8 bolts to anchor, the first 3 of which are shared with Chillin' and Maxin'.

A little awkward/chossy on the bottom, but things get great up at and after the roof. I don't recommend you try and clean it on rappel, you'll swing out into space over wonderama and chew your rope up in the process. Either lower and tram, or better, top rope thru the gear and then rappel.
