Train Spotters

Post  Rustic on Fri 08 Jun 2012, 3:24 pm

Hi all,

Well sadly we have had no snow in my neck of the woods. however down South they had a little. The main trunk line between the West and East Coast needed clearing so the train driver thought he would take matters into his own hands and set to work. No snow plough was used in the making of this video.

It was mighty effective - the track behind him had no snow at all.

Imagine the force behind it. The driver was saying that the front of the train naturally forms a V and allowed him to get through the up to five metre high mounds....

Imagine if something was on the tracks and hidden by the snow What a Face affraid
