    Nice pics, Mister Nutbar, :thumb: but it's lucky that you're modelling the 'fifties instead of the present-day scene. What with global warming, the plows would all be on the dead line, awaiting the torch.:cry:

    I was just reading an article on rotary plows in Railfan magazine. It was listing the rotaries that are still in service and most of them haven't been used much in recent years. Some not since 1996. They are kept on standby, waiting for the "big" storm.
    Great photo's Nutbar. Will your plow look that good after a winter of fighting snowdrifts?

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Reminds me of the one I used to see sitting in the Orangeville yard when I'd cross the tracks everyday on the way to school. 'Course, that one was a CPR, but what are you gonna do...?!? ;)

    Awesome stuff. Who makes it? Is the TH&B one the same style as CPR plows? CP keeps one in the Woodstock yard for clearing some of the branchlines around here.
