Rotaries – Avalanche on the Mountain Screening & Q&A

Feb 29, 2020 12:00pm - 1:00pm

As seen on KVIE


Saturday, February 29- Join us for a screening of Rotaries - Avalanche on the Mountain. The film explores a story of survival when men and machines vied with the mountains and the elements. When a winter storm shut down the west-east railroad route across America, a vision from the past - the rotary snow plow invented in the 1800s - helped rescue a trapped train crew and re-open this major rail line. After the screening, Executive Producer Brendan Compton will answer questions and talk about his experiences filming the footage. 

Free with admission.* 

Showing begins at 12 Noon in the West Theater of The California State Railroad Museum.

*Members receive free museum admission for number of adults covered in membership level.
