UP 4652 "Plow Train" by Wayne, Illinois on 2-2-2011

A SD70M is in the lead of a two engine "plow train" bashing through the snow along the Union Pacific's Belvidere sub. After the day's major snowstorm.

A tip from Dave Hawley and further updates from Clarke got me in position to catch this run. It was just a few minutes before sunset and I was concerned about the diminishing light. But I think it worked out for the best. Perhaps my best 1 minute and 4 seconds of video ever.

Engineer Hawley plays a mean horn.
