Remarks & Notes 
Duty calls. A high desert snowstorm is in full-swing and the Nevada Northern Yard is pretty much deserted, save for one intrepid locomotive crew for whom hunkering down is not an option. The smelters at McGill are hungry for more copper ore and there's a loaded string of hoppers waiting at the mines in Keystone. By the time these railroaders return in about 8 hours, going home for the night may not be an option either. This classic scene was recreated by the Nevada Northern Railway Museum...with a little help from mother nature.
