Plow Extra NYSW Utica NY Branch
Author: ut-1

New York, Susquehanna & Western ran a plow extra this morning on its Utica NY line from the Utica yard 23 miles south to Sangerfield and return.

Between Utica-Sangerfield lies Paris Hill and its 1.8% grade, the ruling grade on predecessor road Delaware, Lackawanna & Western.

The plow train is first seen in this video on Utica's Schuyler Street. Following scenes: Utica along NY State Routes 5/8/12, South Utica, Chadwicks, Clayville, Cassville, Paris Station (at Paris Hill's summit, or nearly so) and, lastly, in Waterville, a few miles north of Sangerfield.

Yup, they didn't even have enough snow to deploy the side wings until ~  2:50

TBH I believe callum was joking.  There is quite a history here of folks asking where the rotaries are out west.
