Plowing snow on a 7.5" Gauge Railroad. This video shows opening the track between Train Mountain and Klamath & Western. The snow was 18" deep in some places, and the track under the snow was sufficiently icy that it was difficult to build up speed. After coming up the 2.5% Pena grade, I was able to build up speed going over the dry track on the bridge into the 1.8% downgrade. You can see how the snow flies with a little speed. Unfortunately, the camera angle was not always good as I was holding the camera with one hand and operating the locomotive with the other, while holding my feet up out of the snow.
