FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" FEBRUARY 8, 2014

With a Cold Weather Speed Restriction placed on the entire Island Falls Subdivision because of the -25 Celsius temperatures, we catch "Plow Work" 1804 utilizing Jordan spreader 529, GP38-2 1804, and van 124 on February 8th as the crews embark on an all day mission clearing snow banks and flanging the 186 mile Island Falls Sub along with every siding along the way. Here we see the spreader in the process of clearing the siding at Clute located at mile 9.8. Once the siding is cleared, the consist is reversed to the siding's south switch, and thus continues north clearing the main until the next siding which would be Wurtele at mile 25.6.
