Remarks & Notes 
The Skyline loadout at the end of the Union Pacific’s Pleasant Valley Subdivision in Utah is right at 8000’ elevation. It has a pretty stout winter and lot of snow. Normally the near daily coal trains keep the snow plowed off the tracks pretty well. However today, a UP track inspector told me that they were going to run a snowplow on the branch. I hustled down to the highway crossing just north of the town of Scofield to wait for said plow. Well, it was no rotary plow; not even a wedge plow or a spreader. The “snowplow” was this ballast regulator. The picture of it in action is on the tail track of the Skyline loadout.
