Regardless of what railroad owns the tracks or what trains are running on the rails, I think this is a timeless shot representing railroading in the Colorado Rockies in the dead of winter. A westbound coal empty approaches the grade crossing at Tolland. In the distance, the driver of the pickup apparently thought he could go in deeper snow that he actually could. A few friends work to help pull him out of the drift.
