Who knew they had a flanger?
The snow in Durango, Colorado, is legendary. For this photographers special, they decided to bring out the flanger to help clear the tracks.
The Durango and Silverton Railroad has 3 K-28 Class 2-8-2 Mikado type locomotives. Although less powerful than their K-36 cousins, these smaller locomotives were preferred by engineers because of their design and balance.
