Here's hoping we get a lot of snow this year - this was my first plow chase and boy was this ever quite the day to go taking photos. Squalls off the lake, zero visibility at times, and blowing snow on roads made this one dicey drive. But here we are at Stratford, the chase is over and Cndr. Snook is kicking the shit out of a stubborn switchstand to get it in place so the crew can complete taking the siding and park the train in the yard. The matching RLK F units, RLK 4001 and plow sit on the turnout at a nice angle and the Stratford historic GTR station completes the scene.

Note GEXR's orange plow GEXR 55408 (ex cn) at right which at the time was also in service. There was two plows at the same time out on the road during this era on GEXR!
