"Danger and trouble come to a lone mountain telegraph post on the buzzard-like wings of a raging blizzard!"Jud Marlin's grudge against the railroad seems certain to continue into the New Year; what's not so certain is whether he'll let Eph Cartwright, little Rock Siding's station agent, do the same . . .
|"Slowly, it approached the station, a rotary giant that could bite through the deepest drifts and make the passage of trains possible."|

- Rails West has an informative page, "Telegraph Enables More Flexible Train Order Operation," on their site (HERE) that shows McCulley did his research (see especially "Timetable and Train Order Operation").
