The East Side, with Truckee beyond Donner Lake and with old U.S. 40 snaking down that way. The Interstate is routed north of here, while the railroad runs around the ridge on the right. The two tracks separate at the summit, with the old line running through a short tunnel and the newer one running through a 2-mile-long one, but they join again and wind down the hill seen here on the right. The tracks take advantage of side valleys--Lakeview Canyon and Coldstream Valley--and loop into them to ease the grade.
