This will be a special chance to experience an operating ROTARY SNOWPLOW as it works through Sierra snow when the Western Pacific Railroad Museum will be running historic Rotary Snowplow Southern Pacific MW208 on Friday, March 22, 2019!
The FIRST RUN of the day will be clearing snow from the WPRM trackage. This is a VERY LIMITED event with 6 seats available in the rotary cab, 4 seats available in Southern Pacific GP9 2873, which will power the train, and 4 seats in the cupola of our DRGW caboose. 10 positions are available for photography. The FIRST RUN will depart at 11 AM.

After the first run, general admission will open at 12 noon for 50 persons to join the first runners in getting up close with the rotary as it makes additional runs around the museum.

- As weather is unpredictable, we cannot guarantee snow levels. We expect about 2-3 feet of snow on the south side of our balloon track, enough to put on quite a show. The rest of the track currently has about 1 ft of snow on it, but some will likely melt off. However, if weather does not cooperate and this event is cancelled before the day of the Rotary Run, all monies will be refunded.
- All proceeds go to benefit the preservation work of the Western Pacific Railroad Museum.
