Just look at the size of this thing! It's huge! I always wondered HOW the tracks were plowed but never knew. Now I do.
This particular plow looks fairly new. What a thrill it was to see it up close!
Please pardon the dumpster in the background. It was the best I could do while trying to get a full view shot from this angle.
As you can see there was one engine in the middle and a Wedge Snow Plow on each end. Pretty cool, huh? And this is why I bring my camera with me everywhere I go, because you just never know what you're going to run into! The next day it was gone so I would have missed my chance.
Not exactly the pride of the Boston and Maine railroad but this wedge plow does the trick! It appears this is an oldie but a goodie.
Since I wondered what a Snow Plow looked like going down the track I went straight to the source: Youtube
Sure enough I found this video and many others like it. Judging by the website these guys have, I would say they love watching the Snow Plow trains too! Enjoy!
