I was pleasantly surprised when I saw some of the white stuff on the ground this morning and immediately thought - plow train

First sequence through the woods








Next sequence along the stream





Sequence #3; up the hill...








Finally back to the engine house...

Very nice Dan. Good luck clearing the line today. I looked out today and my station is 100% buried in snow!

Thanks for these - unfortunately, in Marblehead (north of Boston) the snow is about three times the height of my Accucraft Shay. Is anyone else desperate for spring? Doesn't help that my wife and her girlfriends are on their annual junket to St. John right now, where the temp is approx 85.

Thanks for the kind comments. The 3 cylinder shay is my favorite for plowing, it craws along real slow and has plenty of weight and power.

What a difference a day makes, we have a good 12 inches on the ground today. Below are some shots from the same locations. RR operations will be suspended until I can break out the rotary plow or mother nature takes it's course....

Through the woods, - trees and cabins are under the snow...




Up the hill past the lumber mill



Along the stream

Except for an icy patch, my track was clean yesterday. Today, it's not the snow keeping me in, it's the bitter wind blowing it around. And 13 degrees, minus the wind chill.

Nice pictures, Dan.

Dan these are more from yesterday before the heavy snow fall came.





























And then a few from your raised layout.














These were taken while you were working on your Royal Hudson.

Thanks for posting more pics George

"These were taken while you were working on your Royal Hudson."
I noticed there are none of my Hudson; I worked on remedying the problem with the fitting last night, if this does not work I will get a new one from Cliff.
