This is an old Chicago South Shore Railroad electric train that runs between South Bend, Indiana and Chicago - these cars were probably close to 100 years old when they were retired. We called riding these cars the "Vomit Comet".

Donner Pass, Southern Pacific train.  Southern Pacific Railroad's passenger train City of San Francisco was en route westbound through the gap when a raging blizzard slowed the train to a halt. The passengers and crew were stranded for three days until the nearby highway could be plowed enough for a caravan of automobiles to carry them the few miles to Nyack Lodge.

On January the Southern Pacific’s “City of San Francisco” train was buried by an avalanche just west of Donner Pass in Yuba Pass. To give an idea of how deep the snow is, in the century, it still took six days to get to the trapped train.
