North of Hensall is the small town of Kippen, where a small bridge crosses the Bannockburn River. As the first GEXR plow to run on the Exeter sub in 14 years heads southward, snow falls off the bridge into the frozen river below.

Caption: North of Hensall is the small town of Kippen, where a small bridge crosses the Bannockburn River. As the first GEXR plow to run on the Exeter sub in 14 years heads southward, GEXR 55403 rattles the timbers causing snow to fall onto the frozen river below.

  4. Great shot….in Kippen!!!!

  5. Excellent photo man.

  6. Excellent! More snow for that area…could be a long-lasting and strong lake-effect event coming up in the next few weeks.

  7. Thanks gang, more to come later. I’m pleased to finally have an Exeter sub plow off my bucket list. Never thought it would ever happen again after I missed it in 2007. (I tried).
