Here in New Jersey we went from a blizzard last Sunday into Monday, to near 70 degree weather this Saturday! We had the K-28 clear the remaining snow and got on with steaming. I don't think that K-28 wants to see any more snow this winter.. LOL.

Here are some shots from this weekend. I filmed the K-28 plowing snow with a short sleeve shirt on!

Hi Dave, I also got an afternoon of running over the weekend, but it has been snowing all day here and the track has disappeared again.

Dave, you still had a lot of snow on your tracks, all the snow in my backyard had already melted for the most part. The snow of my new raised track melted pretty fast with the weather in the 60's. I'm ready for summer too.

Larry- Time to get some snow clearing equipment out.


George - With my layout on the ground, and being in the shad from the fence and between houses, the snow was a deep drift that didn't melt as fast. Here is the layout on Monday. You can just see the top of the water tower and the station is buried.

Very nice David. I wish my layout was not under snow. I have some sections that were just peeking out but the storm from yesterday made short work on that. there are sections that are well under 3' of the white bliss.

but as it always does, it will be gone soon enough.

How come you didn't try plowing through the heavy stuff. You need one of those snow blower cars that I have seen a few people use. I have two Aristocraft snow plow gondolas, but by next year I have to get one of the snow blower cars myself and or try and build one.

Hey George - I would love to have a rotary plow, but at that depth I would have made a tunnel through the snow. Must have been 2 feet deep in some areas.
