ok, This is a SW1 on crack!!!! Geez what a motor.

Whoa...she looks identical to the SW1 @ Sheldon, NE...was JTPX #62, but stored at a Cargill elevator along the UP w/of Grand Island. Hmm, I wonder if this unit came from the same elevator in WY that 62 came from?

You need that kind of plow if you're going to run in the winter in SD. I have personal experience with that!!

Is this line still in use?
5/13/2014 12:58:58 AM
YES! The line is still active, although not what I would call a "hotbed of activity" LOL!

Looking on Google Earth, I notice there are two locomotives, mow equipment, 11 tanker car and three hopper cars. Is the fracking activity going on?

Love that bell-and-bracket. too! Nice touch! As for the plow, and the snow, these SW-1's didn't have a lot of horsepower (660?) so I hope it can make it through another winter.
