MAC on Frederick Md. branch as a plow
Author: cameraman

Today CSX D786 operated out of Brunswick as a plow train on the Old Main Line. It took a side trip up the Frederick, Md. Branch to plow out the MARC line to Frederick. Train operated with SD80MAC 802 in the lead and a 500 series AC.

First photo is of plow train at Frederick Station.

I wanna see someone try to lace the hoses! No way you\'ll be able to find the likes of any A&R hose in that mound of snow! Nice shots though!

12,000 hp to move around 1 1/2 feet of snow, some thing isn\'t matching up here in my head.

How \'bout your math? 5,000 and 4,400 are 9,400, not 12,000.

Not only was the horse power wrong but I don't know that the MU cable is damaged. I believe I see the end of it still intact.
