Ride with the engineer while watching the locomotive push snow with …..NO PLOW!

Absolutely fun clip provided by the engineer himself showing the snow piling up in front of his locomotive (referred to as a “HOG” in railroad lingo).

Shot at night, the effect is dramatic and fun! Music plays in the background (“Lost Train Blues” by The Virginia Mountain Boys”). Makes you want to pull up a chair sit a spell!

The train is located in the Temiscaming area of Quebec, Canada. The Ottawa Valley Railroad runs a freight line between Sudbury and Temiscaming using heavy locomotives similar to the EMD SD-18’s at approximately 368,000 lbs each.

The locomotive is plenty heavy to move snow buildup in front of the cab!
