The Iron Horse is the American nickname for the steam trains of the 19th century. The lift he's referring to is chair 21 at Vail, entitled 'Orient Express'.

How high is the top of Pano? The Bee tops out at 12,000', which puts it in the running for highest sixpack. Unless you count the Fat Tire I had while climbing, but.... oh, not that kind. Sorry.
