Upon hearing a rumour there might be a plow out, I looked outside and was puzzled - this wasn't plowing weather, so I said 'surely you jest'. Since I don't go to GEXR country too often anymore, and with roads clear and nothing to lose, I decided to head out and see what I could find as I figured I could catch up to it as the train had already been on duty. I found them at Mitchell preparing to depart and with not much time the chase was on. Pictured is a scene at Seaforth that hasn't really changed all that much, in the background is the Seaforth Elevators and Expediting at left, and the old Boilersmith factory at right, still active. Later that day, I'd get a surprise I'd  been waiting 15 years for, another shot at shooting a plow on the Exeter Sub
