Remarks & Notes 
Sometimes you have to get out and dig! MBTA trolley snowplow 5138 and its crew work to clear the Beacon Street line (now the MBTA C Line) in Brookline, MA, during a February 1969 blizzard that deposited two feet of snow. One of the crew has brought his own camera to record the action. Plow 5138, built in 1908 as a city car for the Boston Elevated Railway and later converted, was already 61 years old. This ancient machine is now at the Seashore Trolley Museum in Maine.
