When the United States Army decided to sell the Sno-Train as surplus, it came with a parts inventory valued at $20,000, description, technical capabilities, and images. All of this were listed on the Army form “Sale of Government Property: Item Bid Page.” One of the images that came with the Sno-Train was of the Cummins VT-12 diesel engine, seen below. The Cummins produced 600 horsepower. The engine was coupled with an A/C and D/C generator to power The Electric Drive (wheel motors and drivers (mechanical gears)), interior cab lights, exterior lighting, winch, and job crane. The Sno-Train was sold as surplus from the Fort Wainwright Property Disposal Office. At the time of its sale, it was in working condition.
