Rotary Snow Plow No.1
- First off;
Thank you for the heads up on being "Yahooed". They had me signed up
to recieve spam from here to eternity.
Now back to our regularly scheduled railroad:
I recently won in a E-bay auction a set of drawings which included
one made by Mr. Darr back in '62 of NCNG "Rotary Snow Plow No.1"
My NCNG book is (the horror) in storage, and I can't remember for
sure what book said about this Rotary's history. I seem to recall
that they bought it after a heavy snow year, then never needed to use
The drawing says it was built by Swane Lumber Co. and sold to the
NCNG in 1940. Power was supplied from a marine engine, possibly from
a class "A" Climax. The trucks were also from a small Climax.
Does anyone have more information on this beast? Such as what Climax
Swane scrapped to build it? Was the Rotary scrapped at the end, or
