Ever wonder how they get snow off of a train tracks? Apparently they just haul ass through the snow because it’s a train.
The result is captured in this video and it’s glorious.
According to the description on LiveLeak,
I’m not even sure how many locomotives this train had …
Railfanning Post Blizzard of 2015 Storm #3.
Canadian National Railway locomotive 2304 (ES44DC) plows through huge snow drifts and gives me a big ass snow shower as it leads the daily CN manifest train 406 West (Moncton, NB to Saint John, NB) at Salisbury, New Brunswick.
I’m not sure how the train crew can even see with all that snow on the locomotive’s nose!
Southern New Brunswick was hit with three major blizzards in less than a week, and there is more snow in the forecast.
