We love us some steam locomotives right here at AutoCarTechNews and have run a whole bunch and a whole bunch of items of content material through the years displaying them doing their factor in varied configurations and settings. This video is neat as a result of we see two huge locos working in tandem to plow snow off the tracks on a grade whereas traversing the tracks of the Cumbres and Toltec scenic railroad. That individual line was opened in 1881 and runs in each Colorado and New Mexico going by the go and the Toltec gorge.
The neat factor right here is the 2 locomotives are pushing and grunting their means up a grade whereas clearing the tracks and hauling like 10-12 passenger vehicles behind them. We’re guessing that this video was made within the later fall and at elevation as a result of the road doesn’t run straight by the winter. Excessive sufficient up within the mountains and the snow would certainly be flying by that point of the yr.
The shot is basically lovely and when the trains come by and hammer their whistles it makes for a extremely good present…if you’re into stuff like this.
Press play to see these two locomotives chug their means by the snow
