Transcription"This was taken looking north and from the bridge. The part of the coach belongs to the the train in the drift, and the one further up is the one that came to pull the other one out and went off the track bucking the snow. the second engine was still on so pulled the other one back to Elgin after they got it back on the track. After all the fussing a rotary came thru and cleaned things up in a day. Nick and Margaret left as soon as the roads were open." - Handwritten on back of print.
