Filmed on the Moffat Route in Colorado before the Moffat Tunnel was completed.
This railroad was really named the Denver and Salt Lake Railway. This movie is a railfan's dream showing the extreme winter weather conditions on Rollins Pass and was filmed there and at Corona, the railroad town at the top of the pass (11,676 ft). The rotary snowplow scenes are a must see.
I saw it on its 75th anniversary at Denver's Paramount Theatre with the Mighty Wurlitzer Double Console Organ . What an experience! The movie premiered in Denver and was a major event in 1925.
The story is pretty exciting too. People are trapped at the summit by a blizzard and wait for help to arrive.
I wish it was available on DVD or VHS. I think there are only a few good prints left.
