During the course of the last two and a half years, I’ve been contacted or I have reached out to nearly a hundred or so people. Some of these contacts have developed into friendships with flights out to visit, lunch visits in the Tacoma, WA area, social media communications, letters or packages, or simply emails. I first reached out to Patrick Jacobson (https://www.instagram.com/patrickjacobson/) nearly a year ago about some of his photographs. Yesterday, he messaged me with nearly two dozen Sno-Train photographs he captured during his visit to the Yukon Transportation Museum (YTM) (https://www.instagram.com/go_ytm/) this week. Patrick, thank you for keeping me in mind and as you visited the Sno-Train and the YTM!
The rear view of the Sno-Train shows the jib crane, winch, and fuel tank. The bar extend parallel to the ground and rear attaches trailer number one.
Here is a better view of where the jib crane attaches to the Sno-Train.
Here is one of my favorite images that Patrick took at the YTM. You get a clear shot of the top of the jib crane and fuel tank. If you look towards the front of the Sno-Train, you can see the transparent observation dome which was replaced after it arrived in Whitehorse. Don’t forget the Firestone 120x48x68 tires. Those tires are four feet wide and 10 feet tall.
