By recollection, the clean-out tracks at Bison Yard (Buffalo) were notelevated. In the winter of 1977, the function of the clean-out trackschanged, however. Instead, the tracks became the loading pointwhere outside contractors could get rid of snow that had accumulatedin the yard. One official had an idea -- load snow into empty Clinchfieldhopper cars and it would surely melt before reaching St. Paul. Severalweeks later, there was a headline in The Roanoke Times - "St. Paulreceives belated Christmas gift". The hoppers were hauled to Bluefieldto allow them to thaw. Harry Bundy
