"On a fishing weekend. We were looking at the glacier. 5/30/47." Click here for a larger image.
Pat Durand added: John the photo above is another view of 212 taken in the loop district. They have stopped at the eastern edge of the loop and are looking West or RR North to view the loop bridge crossing at the bottom of the grade. Bartlet Glacier is in the background. It was probably taken the same day as the other view you have of 212 recently posted in the Miscellaneous roster section. Some time after 1948 when the blue and yellow paint was applied to passenger equipment. Guess that the date is probably May 15 or so.
