This was a tricky chase! I didn't know where to start... I heard this plow
extra was on its way to Brunswick on the scanner. When we got to Brunswick,
they said on the scanner they were going back west. That worried me a bit
because when I heard that, we were still on the Interstate and didn't know
if we'd make it in time. We made it to Grant Road with a few minutes to
spare. After Grant Road, it got a bit harder becasue I am not too familiar
with the Brunswick/Freeport area. The traffic was slow through there which
made it harder to keep up, too. We caught up to it again at Mill Road and
had seconds to spare! After that, we went to Intervale Road where we met
the Empty Oil Train.
*Note: Mill Road was shaky becasue we made it as soon as the crossing
At Intervale Road, the Empty Oil Train took the mainline and passed the
snow plow that was on the siding. The plow came through after the oil train
The second location is Mill Road in North Yarmouth, ME and the third is
Intervale Road in New Gloucester, ME.
*Thank you to my dad for driving me around and helping take some video
while I took photos. He took the video at Mill Road and Intervale Road

"SNOW GOOD!" NYS&W SU99 Plows and removes trees on Norfolk Southern's Hudson Secondary
On March 1, 2010 New York, Susquehanna & Western's SU99 finally was on a
roll again after spending over three days in Vernon, New Jersey due to the
massive heavy wet snowfall the struck Orange County, New York. Well over
thirty inches was recorded in most areas and fell in just over 24 hours
downing trees everywhere and cutting off power. NJT opened the Port Jervis
Line on Sunday night, thus giving the SU99 the go ahead. They encountered
problems of their own on their railroad striking a large tree and damaging
the grab iron on Thursday during the height of the storm. On Monday it
should be smooth sailing, right? WRONG! Norfolk Southern never sent anyone
out onto the Hudson Secondary. Although the snow was not as deep due to
warm temperatures, trees were down along the line. The first one being
north of Warwick. Although it was pushed aside by the locomotives, the
train soon went in emergency. They knew what had happened. The tree must
have struck a cut lever and effectively broke the train in two. Sure
enough, the last car was cut away from the rest of the train. They almost
made it. Soon NS personnel showed up to ride on the train to chain saw any
remaining trees. The train was left behind and the four locomotives rolled
toward Hudson Jct. clearing a path. Shots between Wisner Road and
Sugarloaf, then I had to leave. There is another video here on youtube by
someone else that picks up in Chester, so between our two, you get to see
how much of this day turned out.
6 Peoples Reactions to the CRAZY 900hp 3Dx Evo
We had a blast giving people rides in the Evo, even had a guest driver when
we gave Miss Thai Thai a ride after her photo shoot! See what people
thought about the car, caught a lot of people off guard.

189 Snow Plow Extra
1.5 Scale Allen 2-6-0 Mogul plowing 8" of
snow on the Redlake Junction Railroad
Guilford Freight in Peabody Square, Peabody, MA
Last Friday, my brother and I were blessed with a rare and possibly
fleeting opportunity to film Pan Am Railways' Maine Central EMD GP40 #319
in Peabody, Massachusetts. Sadly, aside from the MBTA's
Newburyport/Rockport Line, virtually all of the train tracks in the North
Shore area have been abandoned for at least fifteen years. The tracks you
see in this video are the remnants of the Salem and Lowell, Essex, and
South Reading Branch Railroads, and, as you can see, they're barely a step
above being abandoned themselves. These tracks see an average of one
locomotive every one to two weeks, as the only local customers are Eastman
Gelatine Corporation and Univar USA. There is so little activity on this
stretch of track that even some of the locals assume they're abandoned or
exempt: there have been several recent incidents where things like trucks
and dumpsters have been left on the track.
Unfortunately, abandonment may lie in this branch line's future, as the
Eastman Gelatine compound is changing hands sometime in January, and it's
been speculated that the entire operation will be consolidated and moved to
upstate New York, leaving PAR with a even further diminished branch line
that they're already not too enthusiastic about maintaining. I hope that
doesn't end up being the case, but we'll just have to see what happens.
On a positive note, the MBTA is considering an extension of their
Newburyport/Rockport Line that would utilize this right of way.

The world's largest rail car, the Schnabel Car: 2,090,000 lbs. from Mendota to Wyanet, IL. 08/29/10
On August 29th, 2010, the world's largest rail car, known as the "Schnabel
Car," (CEBX 800) ran down the BNSF Mendota Subdivision, to Galesburg, where
it would make the trip to Kansas. The car carries a 675 ton, reactor
vessel. Unloaded, the Schnabel car weighs in at 370 tons, equaling 740,000
pounds. It contains 36 axles, 18 for each half. With the 675 ton
(1,350,000 pounds) reactor, that brings the grand total to 2,090,000
pounds. Locations in this video, include Mendota, Arlington, Zearing,
Malden, Princeton and Wyanet, IL. Due to federal regulations, the train was
restricted to 15 MPH and was required to stop, whenever a meet with another
train, would occur. BNSF ES44DC 7908 is in charge of the train, followed by
Specialized Rail Transport, caboose JNSX911, the Schnabel and PHNX caboose
Scene 1: It took a while for the train to negotiate its way through
Mendota, IL., but it made it without any problems.

KZJ one !!! This time its SBC bound 16529 Udyan express running about 35

The Rhythm of Film' - http://filmstore.bfi.org.uk/acatalog/info_59.html
Comprising train and track footage quickly shot just before a heavy
winter's snowfall was melting, the award-winning classic that emerged from
the cutting-room compresses British Rail's dedication to blizzard-battling
into a thrilling eight-minute montage cut to music. Tough-as-boots workers
struggling to keep the line clear are counterpointed with passengers'
In a mere half-dozen films released between 1959 and 1975, director
Geoffrey Jones revealed himself as an outstanding talent, embracing
industrial filmmaking as consistent with a personal style, blending
movement and sound into a joyous, rhythmic whole. Brilliantly aided by
Wolfgang Suschitzky's shimmering camerawork, the Oscar-nominated 'Snow' is
Jones' masterpiece. It's crisply invigorating enough to induce brief
amnesia about our trains' notorious inability to cope with the white stuff
- then and now. (Patrick Russell)
