The Army’s Sno-Train is carrying a 12-ton load of an unspecified material. Even though images include dates, and sometimes locations, they can be wrong. I look for clues that could help me establish a possible location. For example, in March of 1956, the Sno-Train was shipped from the factory in Longview, TX to Houghton, MI for testing. The Sno-Train image doesn’t show a V-shaped push guard under the main cab. This addition wasn’t added until it arrived in Greenland in 1956. Images like this tell a story. You just have to know where to look.
