   Ole buzzard  For this rail adventure, we'll head north to the White Pass & Yukon, a tourist line that travels between Skagway AK and the US/Canada border in British Columbia.

The White Pass & Yukon's "rotary fleet" consisting of vintage snowplow #3 (Cooke - 1899 ) is marching upgrade trailed by twin steam locomotives #73 (Baldwin 2-8-2 blt. 5-47 ) and #69 (Baldwin 2-8-0 blt. 4-07 ) and coach 211 as it heads for White Pass summit and the Canadian border to do battle with the snow drifts in the time honored tradition. This is the task for which she was built 111 years ago. The train is traversing the high line and is just shy of 16 miles from Skagway and tidewater but has already climbed over 2000 feet. Here the train is curling over the curved wooden trestle of bridge 15C and into one of two tunnels on the line (250 ft long tunnel 15 ). This shot was taken from the platform of the following passenger train as we sat near MP 12.2 looking across the canyon of the Skaguay River which is some 1000 ft below the train clinging to the mountain side of the White Pass' "high line."
