    Hello Tony,

    That is what is definitely referred to as
    great mountain railroading. I am drooling already for winter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They refer to this as a two locomotive consist,
    which is also referred to as a "plow extra" here in the
    colonies.

    I think you have a Beilhack rail mounted snow clearer/rotary plow
    in Kiwi Country too- I will have to check my machinery master list.

    You call that snow? If it isn't as high as the wind screen it doesn't count. If it isn't deep enough to derail the locomotive it doesn't count. If the train can push through it doesn't count. ;-)
