      I got my copy of RMC yesterday, and had the same thought. I think a
      Z-scale Russell Snow Plow is very doable, even with moving wing plows. As
      for other snow plows, there are a few manufacturers that make them,
      including Railex, Westmodel, and Kr├╝ger, although none of them make a
      Russell Plow.
