Remarks & Notes 
Snow Fleet to the Rescue! - Hard by the Tunnel Station sign and the mileboard, this work train known colloquially as the "Snow Fleet" is heading south with Jordan Spreader #7 leading trailed by two geeps and one of the ARR's two depressed center flat cars. They are heading up toward the site of the massive slide near MP49 in the famous "loop district" that buried a northbound freight nearly a week prior. The excavator with the custom designed snow bucket is on its way to continue the arduous task of extracting flat cars from a tomb of snow. Note: the photographer is a railroad employee and was wearing all required PPE while taking this photograph.
