Coming out of Frost Siding, just into the 4%.

Proceeding up through Confusion Junction (CJ) towards the grade to White Rock (WR).

The "Gorge Line" up the 4% to WR was too packed for up-hill plowing, so back to Frost, up the old River Rock (RR) line to Malfunction Junction (MJ) where we stop for messages,

Underway from MJ towards Glory (GL) on the Lilac Branch.

Coming into the North Switch at Glory, running downgrade, will plow into the turntable pit, and back out to MJ.

Backed through MJ, cleaned out the points, bent the iron, proceeded through the leg of the "wye" towards Laurel Yard (LY), heading towards the station for messages and water at the tank.

Out of LY, on Steven's Canyon Trestle, heading for WR.

This is a shot of WR before the plow extra hit the snow. Taken with a telephoto lens from atop the east tunnel portal just outside of MJ.

Bucking the drifts into WR, passing the spur to the oil depot and the lumber yard, on the siding towards the station. Just preparing to back up onto the trestle and hit it hard.

Back in the terminal for service and a cuppa joe. When serviced, the plow crew will attempt to clear the California and Nevada to Mound House.

RE: "Extreme Trains".....well, cold enough to be.

TOC, nice shots--nice looking railroad.
Del, we Vermonters don't even feel a chill looking at photos like this. Heck, it even got (just) above freezing today, with another 6 inches due tomorrow.

Execellent photos! We are waiting for our first (and probably only) good snow so I can use the plow
with our new GP40's. The train is sitting on the sidding in the garage just waiting for the call. Can't
wait. Temp to be around 7 on Saturday as a low...don't know about snow...but hopeful.

Nothing like running in the snow!
