Review of Rotary Snowplow to Cumbres Pass DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
Perhaps the rarest thing railroading is to see a rotary snowplow in action, even rarer if it’s steam. But in this program you’ll see just that as Cumbres & Toltec Rotary OY conquers Cumbres Pass in fine style.Enjoy two days of great steam action as the OY, pushed by 2-8-2’s 487 and 484, clears the snow from the rails.
With three cameras, you won’t miss any action at all the great places as our snowplow train clears the track ahead. As a special bonus, we’ll visit some retired Rio Grande railroaders who used to run rotary trains, and also get an inside look at how the rotary works. A great addition to any railfan library!

Running time 2 hours, 5 minutes. Chapter menus and narration on or off.
