Canadian National employees use the jet engine powered snowblower to clean ice and snow from the switches in the Rip track area just east of the 2713 train display. It's loud and impressive to see working.
Canadian National engines 1566 and 9473 switching west of the yard office.
After the huge snow storm Canadian National basically shoveled the entire Stevens Point switching yard. It was inpossible to count the payloaders, dump trucks and other equipment involved.
