UP 900081 - Union Pacific Snowplow  Contributor's Pick!       
This is the heaviest snowplow ever built weighin in at 367,000 lb. It was necessary to push this snowplow with 3 or 4 locomotives as the turbocharged diesel engine/electric generator drove the cutting wheel. It now resides at the National Museum of Transportation.
