Joint from Station to Lift Hill

The station has an ending vertical angle of zero. Knowing that the next element will be a lift hill, with a non-zero vertical angle, a joint must be added to connect the two. The angle specified here as the final vertical angle will be used as the vertical angle at the beginning of the next element. The joint parameters are shown below.
\item Initial Vertical Angle --- $0$ \item {...} --- $9$ \item {\em Final Vertical Angle} --- $30$\end{itemize}\end{spacing}
