Snowblower!!!

Check this snowplow/blower!! Off of RP.net

Interesting idea. The design might have a use up there?

Wow. That is interesting. Those blowers move in and out like our tamper does. Very cool. Glad we don't need it though.

Yes, it does look cool indeed, Mike, maybe about zero F?

Interesting that the discharge from one blower impinges directly on the catenary. But neither the plow not the loco seem to be drawing juice. Oh! Maybe it comes down through the snow.  ;D
