After the Sno-Freighter caught fire and became immobilized, it sat for five years in a valley within the Yukon Territories. The Sno-Freighter’s owner contracted with the Army to go in and retrieve the Sno-Freighter with the Sno-Train and personnel familiar with the machines. The image seen below was captured by Augustin “Marty” Martinez, the Non-Commissioned Officer in charge of the recovery mission.
This photo shows the Sno-Train in the rear of the Overland Train convoy. It is supplying power to each of the Sno-Train and Sno-Freighter wheel motors. It progressed at a blistering 0.5-2.0 MPH.
