Planes, Trains and Trucks?
I haven't had too many opportunities to do much railfaning lately but did manage to capture a few photos of CN 616-34 which is a rather unusual piece of MOW equipment. I spotted the unit in the early morning hours March 22 in Cache Creek, B.C. at the local A&W restaurant where the truck driver was tightening the hold down chain. The unit is a jet engine with a flared nozzle mated to a self propelled chassis used to melt/blow snow off tracks.
