Moving lots of snow...

I know there's a lot of trains moving snow on the internet, but the perspective on this one is pretty cool.

Yeah, I wonder if that at-grade crossing would still be passable for cars after the train moved that snow ??

That's what I thought. Very brave or very stupid. Not sure.

The most common place for train derailments to happen is frozen grade crossings, so I vote stupid.

The usual people know a train is coming and they have to beat it.

The railroad(s) usually follow the train with a 4 wheel drive high railer truck that has a plow on it to push the snow pushed through by the lead locomotive back off the roads on to the shoulders.

The railfan that did this was a thrill seeker and foolish. I have this more than once with people filming rotary plow trains in the worst places especially on Donner Pass. The old leslie type rotary plows can move about 14,000 tons an hour in deep snow pack so its a good way to get buried and knocked out if no one knows your there.

This video is from my part of the world. It is from 2015, a year that we had a lot of snow. I suspect all those rail cars are hauling crude oil.
