Remarks & Notes 
Patches of a previous snowfall remain on the ground and more is coming this afternoon in March, 1964 as Alco-GE GTEL 58 climbs Archer Hill east of Cheyenne. The turbine will take this mixed freight as far as North Platte or Grand Island. The exhaust trail is characteristic of the turbines just as it is of the first generation of jet airliners.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
