I couldn't resist posting these photos along with the following caption.
Note: No revenue loads attached to the plow. South Saskatchewan short line railways take note!!!!!!!
These photos were taken on the Bellwood Subdivision, between Seward and David City, Nebraska on the BNSF Ry. Seward is about 25 miles west of Lincoln, on the Ravenna Sub. A few blizzards and sub zero temperatures coupled with moderate winds made for a beautiful, but, flash frozen environment. A freight train was snowed in at David City and a rotary snow plow was sent to clear the track of drifts that varied from 6ft or less up to 12ft in spots!! The photos were taken on Jan. 8th through Jan. 10th.
