S'no Time like the Present.

So far, the winter has been pretty mild, but the Garden Railway authorities do not wish to be caught unawares! So it was that a snowplough was bought on the surplus market, and after servicing was immediately sent on a gauging run between the viaduct and the tunnel.

An 8F runs up Quarry Bank with the snowplough, freshly serviced in preparation for the winter snows.

The snowplough is one of the fine models produced by Flangeway (www.flangeway.com). However, as I anticipate using it on real snow if we get the "right sort of snow", I added extra weight to bring it up to a more stable 108g.
