Remarks & Notes 
This is about as far as Cumbres & Toltec’s Rotary OY outfit train is going to plow on March 1, 2020. It was quickly stopped after breaking though the crusty snowbank along Highway 17, and is now riding on ice-filled flangeways on the eastern side of the highway. A large accumulation of snow was deposited here by highway plows, and all the activity over on this side of the crossing caused a lot of ice buildup too. Since the crew was getting low on time, it was quickly decided to head back to town and call it a day. Better doing this than possibly derailing a rotary plow on top of a state highway crossing.
