There was a G gauge rotary at the Kimberton narrow gauge meet 3 (I think) years ago running on the large scale modular layout, As it came past, I put my hand out to see how much air it was moving- there was a surprising amount The owner saw me do this and said that he had tried it with snow, and as long as the snow wasn't wet and sticky ,the plow worked great. Didn't have as much of a motor whine as the one in the video though.

That is very cool, I could have used such a thing last week! I agree, the blades look very "airplaneish"...closer examination suggests that they are GWS Ducted Fan blades...if anybody wants to build one for themselves.

That snow blower really worked great. That was some fairly serious snow too but tell me,does anybody use the regular train snow plow? Havn't seen one of them yet. Great video and thanks for posting it.
Saw one on youtube so they are in use. I'm talking the v shaped plow that just pushes the snow aside. Worked very well too on a pretty good sized layout in the guys back yard. Pete
