Rotaries: Avalanche On The Mountain
"Rotaries - Avalanche on the Mountain" is a first-hand look behind the scenes of how man and machine worked together to save the mountain pass.
Donner Rails spent 5 days on the mountain capturing some of the most epic and historical footage of the two mammoth beasts at work. Ride with the crew as they attack the West slope of the Sierra throwing snow 100' from the tracks! Witness the bone chilling echoes of the steam whistle and the F-7 locomotive B-unit power ricocheting off mountains and canyons. See the inner workings of the Rotary components like traction motors, drive shafts and gears turning. Hear the heroic stories from the crews.
