|Plot||A wonderful picture showing a train climbing one of the most difficult pieces of track in the world. Hagerman Pass is on the Colorado Midland Railway, west of Leadville, and it is necessary for the trains to climb almost 12,000 feet, over two miles high, to cross the backbone of the continent. This picture is startling in several respects. First a pretty piece of scenery in the heart of the Rockies is shown. The sturdy, rugged mountains make a strong background. Apparently from away down below the whirling puffs of smoke are first seen. They come nearer and nearer and the top of the engines comes into view; it develops into a monster mountain climber. Then another, for the train is a double header, although consisting of only four cars. After the engine comes the baggage, day coach, chair car and Pullman, people being at the windows and on the platform waving handkerchiefs. This film is so good photographically that faces can be recognized as they pass by.... search for Climbing Hagerman Pass on IMDb|
