Where I work one of the section guys or the track inspector will ride in the russel snonw plow. Basically takes alot of snow and wind to bring the plow out if the line isn't a very active one. If you want the tracks patroled you will have to knock the snow off. The local section has already got stuck once this year and had to have the local COOP pull them back to a crossing w/ their payloader.
