Description
View of a man standing in front of a cable car in an unknown place at an unknown date
audiotape 10 A-562. This person (name unrecalled) worked on the skip tracks. He would grease the rollers, lubricate the cable, repair the tracks, etc. He stayed in storrie. This photo is taken on the narrow gauge tracks just east of portal camp. The Hall Scott Speeder was the first engine used on the line between camp 2 and camp 3. It was a six cylinder, 75 or 80 hp, gear driven, shifted just like a car. In the upper right background (4) of the photo is where the powder magazine was located. Everything to do with blasting was stored inside the mountain.
