CP streamlined wedge plow 1997
Author: eminence_grise

CP built its own snowplows at their Angus shops in Montreal, and maintained them at Weston shops in Winnipeg. Over the years, adaptations were made for different conditions.

This plow has had its cupola modified to deflect powder snow, and is shown at Chapleau in northern Ontario in 1997.

They put the fuel oil tank for the heater on the roof? Had to be "fun" wrestling that hose up the ladder.

Other work cars with heaters had the same set up. I'm thinking raised platforms were constructed to fill those tanks.
