Remarks & Notes 
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. Providing motive power for the rotary train is a pair of GEs, with three support cars trailing the power, along with a backwards-facing EMD SD70M, to be used to pull the outfit westward out of a stuck position, if needed.

Pictures of things often unseen in the world of railroading. Interesting equipment, operations, and people that help the railroad go around.
