Stand Well Clear

My thanks to debgeisler for posting helicopter footage of UP clearing snow from the Sierra Nevada. I've seen the rotary snowplows on the maintenance-of-way sidings at Roseville and Truckee, but I've never had an opportunity to see them "live." I bet the local railfan community turned out in droves when they got word that the rotaries had been deployed. It's quite a show!
