Passenger Train

Winter Blast Week continues here at OPOD with this picture of a passenger train in the snow. Looks like the train has stopped for a moment. This is a really chilly looking scene, and I wonder if the passenger cars had any type of heating in them, or if everyone just had to bundle up.


  1. They had a pot belly type stove. One end baked, the other froze.
    That looks like a steep grade for a train. Ice on the track may have stopped them.

  2. Based on PJM's descriptions of this and yesterday, and the caption written at the bottom of this photo, I think this is the Tanana Valley Railroad serving a region of Alaska in the early 1900's.

  3. Downtown Indy is correct!
