Long Description:
This impressive piece of equipment is used to remove snow from the tracks of the line that goes through Glenwood Canyon. The snow blade is parked at this location when not in use. It is easily viewed from the road - this is a working railroad yard - DO NOT ENTER.

The snow blade car is not used often - but when needed, really does the job! The car is pushed from behind by one or two locomotives, depending upon the quantity and moisture (wetness) of the snow. Fluffy winter snow is much lighter than wet spring snow.

NOTE: All photos were taken from the road with a telephoto lens. I did not enter the yard.
