Remarks & Notes 
Charge! After stalling out briefly in the dense, 4 ft. deep snow-pack on Cumbres Pass, the Rotary Outfit has backed up perhaps one car-length, and with two blasts of the small, shrill whistle in the rotary cab, the train begins another charge, seen here just a second or two before full-frontal impact with the snow-bank ahead.
