Single-track snowplow CN 55350 is in front of a dual/multi-track unit that moves plowed snow to the right.
According to my Trackside Guide, CN 55350 was built in 1928 by the Eastern Car Company of Truro NS.
Lettered on the side is "CN 10.86" - could be date of rebuild or major maintenance - and some notices: 
"DANGER - Block Wings Open Before Going Behind" 
"WARNING - This Plow Is Too High To Pass Through Winnipeg Train Shed"
It's a colourful summer scene, but ... Winter is coming.
