The ST Board of Directors has approved the funding to expand our equipment used for plowing operations.  The Suleski Transportation car shops begins this equipment building project.  Until now SP-1 is the only plow we used to keep our entire line cleared. Needless to say as the the companies right of way has expanded, the job of keeping the lines open has gotten more difficult. Now with the approval of our equipment expansion we will be able to clear our lines quicker and offer mutual aid to our neighboring railroads.

The ST corporate website has a photo story page of the project so far:

Great work there Scott. The MBTA has a couple of those single-throw plows parked outside the Boston Engine Terminal, along with a couple of standard wedge plows. When I see them I always have to wonder what stops the blade from acting like a rudder on the single-throws and steering them off the track. Seems like there would be a lot of unchecked sideways forces acting on those things that would be balanced out on a standard wedge plow. The real ones obviously work though, so it should be interesting to see how the model performs in real snow.
