Union Pacific rotary snowplow No. 900082 is eastbound approaching a snowbound Sharon Springs, Kansas, on New Year’s day in 2007. Trains have been stranded there for several days, and this plow operated east from Denver to open up the Kansas Pacific line to Salina. High winds and 32 inches of snow buried the town during the December 29-30 storm. Following the rotary train is another snowfighting train equipped with more support cars, a Jordan Spreader, a Caterpillar with a backhoe on a flatcar, along with more locomotives for the stranded trains.
