Remarks & Notes 
The Alaska Railroad dispatched a "snow fleet" work extra consisting of two GP40-2s pushing Harsco/Jordan Spreader 9 south to Portage to begin opening up the railroad to Seward. The southern end of the ARR's mainline had been out of service since the last coal train ran but was being prepped for some lumber trains from Seward later in the month. While there is no snow to move here, in about 15 miles they will be deep into it cleaning the mountain over Grandview Summit.

This was a perfect day trackside with my great friend and fellow RP contributor Frank Keller.

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.
Love it!

Either coming down or a still in the air. Pictures of snow removal equipment will be kept here.

I'm surprised the photographer was able to click the shutter on his/her camera for these pictures; it looks so cold.
