New Snow Cruiser photos and information found

It was built by the Pullman train car company, in Illinois
and in the below full size news article (click on it for full size) it says that it was abandoned in the antarctic due to it's being so heavy (37 tons and 55 feet long) that it immediately was stuck in and ice crevass. It's longest drive was from the factory near Chicago to the shipping docks in Boston... at 55 miles and hour
found on

for more snow cruiser info and the video of it being unloaded and no surprise, it was too heavy fot the unloading ramp seems no one was really thinking in terms of how a 37 ton vehicle was to get around in a world not paved in concrete
