The railway plough

During the winter not only roads and pavements should be plowed but also the railway track. In today's photo there is a railway plough which removes the snow from the track near to the Nowy Sacz's railway station. In our opinion this machine looks better than common widcats:)

It is a neat machine to be sure. I had not seen one before today. Ages ago when I was a small boy, a train went beside our house. In those days of steam engines, they also had what was called a "cow catcher" in front and originally was to knock things off the track so the engine was not derailed. Anyway, that was also a help to plow through the snow in winter.

They look powerful. Wouldn't want to be facing the wrong end when it started up. Looks a little chilly there, too.

You're obviously well prepared for snow. Sturdy machines!

Looks like it doesn't have too much to do at the moment but - like Lindab says - being prepared is key.
