For the folks in snow country this may be the ticket. looks like a neat idea but a bit pricey if you have a lot of turnouts that you may use while operating your trains Later RJD

A good way to melt snow/ice under the track is to place a rope light in your ballast. Do not use the led version, use the bulb version.

These lights give offenough heat to slowly melt the snow/ice.

I used one to unfreeze a pipe in a wall by inserting it through an electrical outlet. No wall damage or rebuild to do.
Wall heated up from ice cold to very warm to the touch in about 2 hours!!


These can even be placed in gutters to prevent ice dams.
