February 24, 2014: Safe Passage

The westbound Empire Builder slips out of the confines of the Cascade Tunnel into a gathering snow storm, its riders warm and safe as the train makes yet another easy passage across Stevens Pass.  Passengers 104 years ago were not so lucky.  Up in the clouds above today's train is where the town of Wellington once stood, where passengers of Great Northern #25 sat stuck in just such a storm.
