Newsreel - Snowstorm strands dozens on Donner Pass (1952)

Just because you're snowed-in here-and-now doesn't mean you wouldn't have been in similar circumstances there-and-then. In this case, the passenger train "City of San Francisco" has been stranded in over ten feet of snow after a blizzard within the legendary Donner Pass. The travelers survived this journey, unlike their fabled predecessors, the legendary Donner Party of the mid-19th century, who, when stranded, resorted to cannibalism.
