Yea, here is some incredible footage from Southeastern Colorado, and Western

First off, 3 BIG SD's and a wedge plow make a run at a massive snow drift,
and get spectacularly stuck in the process

MAN O MAN! listen at those EMD's start howling!!!

Freeing the Plow, with 6 units..... =9

Pushing thru the Drift, with all the units online.. =10

A good Plow run-by =3

Many more pics, and videos..

Notice how the crew, cannot see where they are at, or even what's
ahead..they rely on folks outside with radios...

I bet some of those "operations" folks are glad we don't get it like that
