Last photo.

Side view of the plow, small hatch is from scrap, stack is brass tube,
steam dome HO from scrap box, whistle from 2-6-0. 

As built RGS #1 & 2 had a window between the plow and access door.

#1 was sold to the Great Northern, converted to burn wood,
then shipped onto the Kaslo & Slocan Rly.

After sale to the Canadian Pacific it would be rebuilt to a steel body,
and converted to oil firing, and worked on the Kettle Valley Rly until scrapped.

Forgot to mention,
that for the roof, I planed a piece of wood to width and profile,
then added a section of curved aluminum, from a local window blind shop.

Styrene added to 45 degree edge's.
Still need to fix gap on roof overhang.

As the plow is heavy at the front,
I do need to add some weight towards the rear.

A most interesting photo,

with the diesel and rail car & Tanque Charuto in the background.


Also the clearest photo, of the dare I say, weird  :Crazy:  fuel oil tank,

makes you wonder if it had a previous purpose, before being set up as a fuel tank.  L:


That is different enough, that I may have to add it to my Round to IT list.

It seems the weirder something is, the more I want to model it!


After I get a bit more track laid,

priority #1 at the moment.

Hi Ken  :wave:



I think it was one of those 'Bauhaus' 1st year student projects, you see from time to time.  :java: :Crazy: :dt:


It would certainly ruin the look of a nice G.W.R. Branchline layout ol' bean !  ;)




I'd make one for the  :moose:Rly.  though ! 



:clown:

Not forgetting that this AMAZING  'dual-Thread'  is about your ^^ snowplow, as well as Ceeegar Tank Cars ...  :mex:


A photo I found, on Google Images, which I believe is of snow cleared on the 'Kaslo & Slocan Rly.'  L:





Def. need a decent plow !  :shocked:

Si.

The photo gives a good look at what a Rotary Plow cut would look like.

Having walked the line, I am certain the photo shows the "Lucky Jim" slide,
prior to the construction of the Rock/Snowshed built in 1897/98.

Attached photo is the shed under construction.

Other photos show the shed could have been built a bit longer,
as snow slides overran the ends.

The site is buried under rock which has come down.

The snow slides had names in most case's along the line,
depending where they came down.

:)
