It's literally a battle between the wrath of nature and the determination of man. It's a seemingly endless fight to keep Cochrane Yard cleared of snow to allow the trains to keep running.  This is a February 2004 photo of Cochrane Yard's Section Foreman Doug at the controls of the Yard's Snowfighter going through the almost daily ritual of clearing snow from the rails. Other Section Crew are busily shovelling out Cochrane Yard's switches, while the Maintenance of Way Cat 966F clears the roadways and parking lots.
