SNOW SCENES - DECEMBER 5, 2003
When I went outside at 6 AM, it was still dark, and already over 2 inches of snow had fallen. I got this
shot of the Boomerang Station before any of the tracks got plowed.
Here is the snowplow in action. The snow is cascading down in a clump today because the snow is
relatively wet. During a dry snow the cascade looks even better. Yes, that's an Eggliner with a plow.
It has a 12-volt battery and a simple 2-speed control: on or off!! ...and it makes a nice little snowplow.
Budd's First Snow - the Budd car plows into a snowdrift, its headlight shining bright. This is at the
same location where the 44 tonner was pictured plowing into a pile of leaves just two weeks ago.
BUDD LIGHT - the Budd Car's bright headlight lights up the drifts left
by the Eggliner plow a few minutes before.
Morning's first light - by the time I left for work around 7:00, the sky was bright
enough to light up the snow piled on the Aristo Truss Bridge.
Thawing out - the storm lasted most of Friday, then another storm hit Saturday, dumping a total of 8
inches. By Tuesday afternoon, the snow had melted enough to run limited freight service. RS-3 no.
449 delivers a load of anthracite coal to keep those potbelly stoves warm.
